  21. Back in the olden days, when sparks flew across gaps, a successful radio communication was a pretty tough thing to accomplish. Morse code operators soon realized that abbreviated transmissions were key (pun intended). So, in order to acknowledge successful receipt of a transmission, the receiving station would send "RECEIVED," letting the sending station know that things were working well. "RECEIVED" was cumbersome so it was shortened to "RCVD," which still seemed clunky so it was shortened to"R." When the microphone was invented, and telephony developed, it became obvious early on tha

  22. I'm also a traditionalist in this regard. For many years, "hf" rigs included 160M. When some manufacturers started including 6M they were advertised as "hf + 6M". Now days the trend seems to be a little more specific such as "80 - 6M" which makes the coverage clearer. In terms of propagation, 6M is sort of a transitional band with both HF and VHF characteristics. I think that some of the confusion about the classification of 6M 1.25M comes from the prevalence of "VHF/UHF" ht's, which are really "2M/70CM" ht's. I am a big fan of the "magic band" 6M.

  41. Nervous? Boy! Was I nervous! I had had my ticket for all of ten minutes when I answered a CQ using a very shaky fist on my straight key. And when I heard my call being sent back to me, it took all the courage I had to stay put and not run screaming out of the room. Fortunately for me, the station I had contacted, WB1FSB, was kind and patient, and acted as if we were engaged in a typical novice QSO. Which we were, after all. And when I figured that out, I got my breathing under control, and actually began to enjoy myself. That's when things got fun! You see, it turns out that WB1FS

  43. VVV VVV VVV VVV Not that it matters, but I always enjoyed taking the CW code tests. The code was absolutely clean. No QRM or QRN. Perfect fist. No abbreviations. The only thing you had to worry about was the stations' call signs and those you got to hear twice. Had the FCC not forced me to learn Morse, I would never have volunteered to learn it. I had no interest in code. After all, it was just a bunch of beeps. I was so uninterested that I couldn't even spell CW. Once I learned it, and got on the air using it, I found out how exciting it can be, and the satisfaction you fe

  48. I like it. I've been thinking about CW a lot lately spurred by all the reading I've been doing about licensing and people's changing attitudes towards CW, notably the FCC. They've basically said that CW is just another mode, just like voice, digital, packet, etc. So if we're all the same, why make CW different - that's what they're saying! CW is unique. It is unique in the paradigm and has a unique place in Amateur Radio history. It is the genesis of our hobby, indeed of all electricity based communications. I guess what I'm saying is that CW has been thrown under the bus 😢

  49. You need to look at your available bandwidth for connecting to the digital network of your choice. DMR does require about double the throughput bandwidth of D-STAR due to the inherent coding (DMR is a ~9600 baud throughput while D-STAR is about 4800 baud). Fusion is dependent on the mode you are using and can vary. Fusion has become popular because Yaesu seeded the market with low cost repeaters and many clubs jumped on the bandwagon hoping to replace agin repeaters at a bargain price. The initial entry into the Fusion environment had its startup problems and now after a few years of operation

  50. When I hear this question, I find myself trying to provide some context first. First and foremost, I am dismayed by the fragmentation of our relatively small Amatuer Radio market by three (or more) competing technologies whose similarities outweigh their differences. This seems counter-productive. Second, although digital modes are sometimes promoted as beng useful for emcomm, it's hard to see that digital voice is a net plus, at least until there is some kind of convergence. For emcomm, we want the broadest pool of available operators, the widest degree of interoperability, and minimal r
