Extra! Extra!

My solo satellite venture

KX9X, my satel­lite elmer, told me what I need­ed in order to play with satel­lites: A decent dual-band HT, An Arrow anten­na with a duplex­er, a way to track the satel­lites, and a way to record. here’s what I did…

July is upon us…and then passed.

I have not had much time due to pro­fes­sion­al com­mit­ments to play on the radio much. I DID get to enjoy the June ver­sion of ARRL VHF con­test, and 6 Meter Spo­radic E (Es) was mak­ing for some freakin’ fun times! So much, that I start­ed dream­ing about what I would need to do to be com­pet­i­tive on 6M.
