Hi Ray,

At least once you're done, you'll know EXACTLY how it works!

First prototype, first draft, VHF antenna.



Can you see the SO-239?

Very foolish getting rid of those radio stations...

Hello Frosty,

You didn't miss anything better than deer hunting  ;)
As to using Tor, the RadioPreppers server isn't located in Iceland for nothing...
(Just a little extra privacy...)

The Fukuoka satellite will be particularly easy to aim your antenna at, due to a faint glow visible with the naked eye...

I wish that was funny, but actually, it's pretty grim humor...

Hello,

Thanks guys for the comments. k1oik has informed me that he wished to be removed from the board so i deleted his account. I do not like censoring either. I would not censor someone who's opinion disagrees with mine. In this case, I could see a storm brewing... This is not the place for personal issues.

I don't know when the newbie thing is supposed to change.. There might be a setting somewhere to change it depending on the number of posts, but I haven't stumbled onto it yet.. Soon enough it will change..

The B&LW board membership is not cheap  ;)

Attach the guy wires to the mast first, make sure they're long enough, let them dangle as you push the mast up, and then secure them to the ground after the mast is up...

Hello Tim,

I would not have tried to walk that up... Rather assemble the elements one by one while pushing the mast straight up, one piece at a time..

Oops, we had some issues here between two members of the board... I removed the posts and suggest that you guys simply ignore each other.. I don't want personal issues to be debated here, period. Incident closed.

I think martial arts does kill tow birds with one stone.. I practice Systema, a Russian martial art. I also did P90X, which is great but very hard. I lost more than 20Lbs with it, but then didn't maintain it and lost the muscles. I am still 20+Lbs lighter though.

New To Radio / Re: QSLs & QSLing for newcomers to ham radio
« on: October 04, 2012, 05:52:38 PM »
Hello Luck,

No such box on the QSL. I did email the guy telling him I would send him one as soon as I got one. He is only 50 miles from me too!

I think "QRP frustration" is an SSB thing... It must be because I have experienced zero frustration using only a few watts with CW. Sure, QRP is not for contesters or anyone who absolutely wants to make contact on every attempt.. That said, I get a reply most of the time. An if I don't, who cares.. Even in case of emergency, I am sure someone would hear me somewhere. SOS in Morse is unmistakable and would certainly clear a frequency real fast.

I like the FT-817ND as well, and might buy myself one some day when finances allow.. I would still pack my K1 with me though...

Gil.
