  1. A great tool to lookup your amateur radio 'neighbors'.
  2. An interesting article on the new Kenwood 710G installed on the ISS. http://k0lwc.com/new-ham-radio-onboard-the-iss-is-on-the-air/
  3. Thanks Bruce. Absolutely great resource. I just posted it here: Thanks!!
  4. The signals listed on this page are used by and sometimes created by amateur radio enthusiasts and operators, including many experimental digital modes. You can find plenty of these signals in amateur frequency bands. Click the name of a signal to see more detailed information, possible decoding, and additional sound and waterfall samples.
  5. Reginald Fessenden was also busy: https://www.nps.gov/caha/learn/historyculture/fessenden.htm From the Cape Hatteras website:
  6. It happened in Maryland, USA in 1900, just south of Washington D.C.
  7. Unfortunately, except for the form factor, which I do not like, I know several people, and have worked with them, who swear by the 7100. What's also nice about it is its front end; unlike the 7300 it handles the overload nicely, so it's also a good NCS rig. Of course the question always comes back, with or without vehicle...I'm loving my RM Italy amplifier with my Yaesu 891. But now that the IC-705 has come out I am considering getting it to replace my 891 _ Icom 5100 combo in the car. It's a QRP and QRPp rig so it draws little power. I can see myself running it into my two amps (I have two RM Italy, one HF and one VHF). I'm waiting to get more real-world analyses of the 705 before pulling the trigger. But cost wise, for now, few options beat the 7100 for an all-band, 100-Watt rig. BTW, the 857D was a nice rig. Had one. But it needs a reboot. Considering the 705 launch, one can only guess that the other manufacturers, if the 705 does well, will enter the space with new all-band radios.
  8. Tom, I don't throw out compliments easily, but behind that singing voice lies one heck of a clear-minded EMCOMM vision. Those little Byonics seem well thought out. Had not seen them before. BTW, I agree that making life less exciting for NCS is not a bad thing. After all, it's about the traffic, not the operator. You might laugh, but in my early EMCOMM days in Canada, for local work, we had both VHF/UHF and a good old pager. That pager would be used to send what we now send via Winlink. I still don't know what I would do with my extra 10K... still prioritizing.
  9. Hey Buddy, good list there. I like the feel of the Commander construction. It just feels strong. Hey Tom, I like that tent. I've been looking at getting an Ice-fishing cube. I like them because they are wind tested and they're nice and dark making it easy to see readouts. The only hassle is that they're warm. I did try a summer version of them that James (W3JRD) lent me but it did not stand up to Assataeague winds last year. That would actually be my only concern with the SICPS, they're strong but the wind does like them. Love that you're thinking about batteries for the younguns.
  10. I'm curious how people feel about the bands recently. I'm not talking about measured data, just a gut feeling. Are you getting better, cleaner contacts? Is there greater stability?
  11. Hey Glenn. How did it go? Is that you in the photo? Hard to tell 'cause it's tinyyyyy.
  12. Probably the smarter move, but I admit I was thinking of something else. I guess in some respects I have a two track mind, spend money on hand gear or photography gear. All week, and anniversary gifts.
  13. ABOUT TIME.GOV Share Facebook Linkedin Twitter Email This website is provided by the Time and Frequency Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The reference for the time shown is UTC(NIST), which is the coordinated universal time scale maintained at NIST. UTC(NIST) serves as a national standard for frequency, time interval and time-of-day for the United States. HOW IT WORKS When a user connects to www.time.gov on a computer or mobile device, the Javascript in the client's browser checks the local clock on the device and then requests the time from a NIST server, which has been synchronized with UTC(NIST). When the packets containing the NIST time stamp arrive at the client's browser, the device clock is checked again and compared to the first check of the local clock. The result is a measurement the round-trip delay of requesting/receiving the time stamp. It is estimated that one-half of the round-trip delay happens in each direction. The time on the clocks shown on the web page have been corrected for the estimated one-way path delay of the timestamp from the server to the client and the server delay. Your device's clock is also shown, with the error compared to NIST time. NON-TRACEABILITY This website is intended as a time-of-day service only. After receiving the initial timestamp, the time on the running clocks shown is based on the local computer oscillator, so it should not be used to measure frequency or time interval, nor should it be used to establish traceability to NIST. SAVING SETTINGS - 24 HOUR CLOCK DISPLAY If you would like to make the site default to a 24-hour clock, you can click the box next to "24 Hour Clock Display" and save a bookmark of the page. IMPROPER USE It is not appropriate to generate your own software to use the functionality of this site, timestamps, server clock, etc. NO outside applications are permitted to use any of the functionality of this site and this type of use will be blocked. SETTING YOUR COMPUTER CLOCK Many operating systems have time synchronization running periodically, if the device is connected to the Internet. Also, you can download software from NIST and other sources in order to use the Internet to automatically set your computer clock to the correct time using the Network Time Protocol (NTP). Mobile phones usually set their clocks periodically according to the time kept at the nearest cellular base station. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION For questions about Daylight Saving Time (DST), a.m./p.m., noon/midnight and UTC, check the NIST Time Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). For time zone offsets around the world, please view our world time zone map.

  14. Just curious what people would put on their wishlist if they were given a US $10,000 gift certificate to buy kit or single item to add to their shack? What would you spend it on??
