Field Day

My Field Day adventure started on Tuesday, 23 June. I finished the final touched to the eARSIB and then through every possible item I thought I might need (minus a 25 pin to 9 pin cable for a Kantronics KPC-3+ which I will talk about later) in a total of 3 footlockers. I packed up […]

The Last Frontier – QSO with Alaska!

I turned the rig on during lunch yesterday for a quick spin around 20M and ran into the Alaska-Pacific Emergency Preparedness [] Net run by Will, AL7AC, from Sterling, AK. I heard the traffic net taking Alaska station check-ins… passing their callsigns, locations, and a brief weather report. I was excited because I was hearing […]

CW advice

From: Barton, Jim Sent: Monday, December 19, 2005 2:54 PM Subject: CW QSO’s Scott, If I offered any advice at all, it’d be to just jump in and get on the air. I’m usually on or around the FISTS frequencies on 20m & 40m (14058 & 7058) most evenings CST, (although this pre-Christmas week will […]

Checked into the HARENET66

This is a fun net! Here’s a short description from their website: “What the Hell is a HARE66? The Hampton Area Radio Entertainment (HARE)Net started years ago with QSO’s on the 147.165 repeater and we never left; just moved to 50.266! Now we are branching out on several other frequencies.” These guys are a riot!

Battery died again

I tried running PocketAPRS from the office without any luck. I’m in the middle of a second floor, not close to a window – and my building is surrounded by other brick buildings… so no real good line of sight. But all the fiddling around took its toll on the battery. After work I set […]
