I just heard this. I see the FCC is so concerned about us amateur radio operators that they issued this edict on a Sunday. Of course the ARRL rolled over and did the FCC‘s bidding by issuing a ridiculous statement of their own. I didn’t see an FCC statement issued when antifa and BLM were using...
Nice radio! I had one, sold it and bumped up to
a 950S Digital got that one before they went ballistic.
Also got a 2000 new. I like both of them quite a
bit. It will be a long time before my shack sees
any new rigs.
Hows about a shack photo?
Try to hit the one on top of Mount Washington. I find that I can hit this one really good 24/7. If you have any elevation at all you should be able to pick it up. Not too much traffic on it but it’s still neat to make a contact that far away.
I thought 800megs was cell phone territory?
824-894 is cell stuff. Many devices have all of that range blocked.
Even though you can receive up to 999megs the 800 range is blocked.
Im just guessing here.
Make sure you get a good ground plane with that tower.
The ground plane is sometimes harder to get right than the tower.
I’ve seen GP’s with well over 100 wires. Do some antenna book
reading about ground planes. It’s tough to get them right.
If your GP ends up looking anything like the one in...
Jack, your not being a CW fudd with me are you?
If code is not cw than what is it? How would one use code
if they did not use constant wave? I’m thinking semantics
is getting in the way here. I guess one could use some other
Form of modulation for the wave but I’m thinking Morse code
I hurried to get my license so I had to pass code!
Just something I wanted to do for me.
I enjoyed the challenge. Once I learned I just
started getting faster and faster. I got to a level
that I could receive 17wpm and transmit 22wpm.
Of course life got in the way and my station has
Don’t stop there do yourself a favor and learn code. Best thing you can do for a ham radio career.
I’m one of those old codgers that think they should’ve never removed it from the licensing requirement. I believe it added a lot of dedication to obtaining a license. Requires...
