HamCation 2020... done

HamCation 2020... done

Blog post category: About the Community HamCation 2020 was our first large hamfest. We are told that we did well; what's sure is that we're happy. We met some amazing people and signed up plenty of new members. We also entered into some really exciting partnerships that you will be hearing about soon. And yes, we will be back at HamCation next year, hopefully in the exact same spot.

Thank you Frostfest

Thank you Frostfest

Blog post category: About the Community Frostfest 2020 has come and gone. RATS did a great job, thank you to the whole team. Early on, the line went as far as the eye could see and, from all appearances, lots of money changed hands. One of the highlights of Frostfest was when one of the announcers came on and told us that someone had lost over $500 in cash. The great news is that somebody else – an hon

Prepping for the big Fests

Blog post category: About the Community Truth be told, we are excited. Throughout 2019, Ham Community has worked to develop the platform, iron out bugs, and most of all, listen to our membership to tailor the experience to what you want, not what we want. The good news is that most of the time, we want the same things. From a unique FCC lookup tool, unlike any other, to our very visual product reviews

Cofounders in the wind

Blog post category: Personal opinion Every year for the past three years, a group of us, notably the co-founders of Ham Community, has gone out to Assateague Island, by the Atlantic Ocean, on the first weekend after November 15. Yes, it's always a little cold and a little windy. Yes, we have to pay $20 to get into the park and $30 a night for a spot. No, it's not pure wilderness camping. But yes, it's

New repeater forum

New repeater forum

Blog post category: About the Community Hi all. Just to let you know that I've created a new forum category about Repeater Management. I realized yesterday, at my club meeting, that we were talking about repeaters and that I had missed that one. Sorry about that!! Must've been 😴 at the wheel. Here's the link to the category, if you'd like to post: https://hamcommunity.com/forum/203-repeater-manag

Staying active in Amateur Radio

Staying active in Amateur Radio

Blog post category: Personal opinion I keep hearing about how many HAMs are licensed but inactive. Some, we are told become licensed, get an HT, get on air for a few days, get bored and go quiet. Others, even old-timers, seem to be frustrated by over-bearing HOAs who will not let them put up antennas. And then there are those who are frustrated by the low point in the solar cycle and have decided that

    • LuckGrib
      Craig left Seattle, sailing down the West coast of America for the first time in August of 2011. That trip ended up lasting one year, returning to Seattle via Mexico and Hawaii. A second trip lasted three years, sailing from Seattle to Mexico, French Polynesia, Niue, Tonga, New Zealand, Tonga, Fiji, New Zealand and then back to Seattle, again via Hawaii.

      While out cruising, and using a variety of GRIB viewers on a regular basis, Craig had become dissatisfied with what was available. With a background in Computer Graphics and Computer Science, and with 20 years of professional software development in those areas, he felt that there was a possibility of creating a new, modern GRIB viewer that would be able to be much more informative while being highly responsive.

      Craig started work on LuckGrib while sailing on his yacht, s/v Luckness, in New Zealand during December, 2014. Version 1.0 of LuckGrib was released on the Apple Mac App store in early August, 2015.

      LuckGrib takes full advantage of the multiple CPUs offered by modern hardware, as well as the high performance graphics hardware they contain, their GPUs. By efficiently utilizing the available hardware, LuckGrib is able to produce high quality renderings of the weather, in real time. GRIB files are loaded almost unbelievably quickly. When stepping between different time intervals in a GRIB file, the changes are animated at a high frame rate, yielding smooth transitions. All of this speed and quality helps you to understand the GRIB file content and how it changes over time.

    • My Medic
      Not all beginnings start with happiness. A tragic accident that took the life of a family member was the motivation that started MyMedic. Several years ago a normal day turned dark after a car accident occurred. Bystanders without First Aid equipment or training watched for 40 minutes as a family member of ours bled to death. That’s how long it took EMS services to arrive on scene due to the remote location the accident had taken place. Help is further than you may think.

      As a family we came together and started MyMedic with one objective in mind, to save lives. Our goal is to prepare everyone with equipment and training for the unexpected emergency.

      We discovered that most people are not prepared for emergencies. It’s an unfortunate reality. Life can be gone in an instant, but if you had the power to prevent a loss, you would take it in a heartbeat. Whether you’re driving to and from work, enjoying the great outdoors, or staying home, the solution is peace-of-mind knowing that you have instant access to a MyMedic First Aid Kit.
