  1. Wow, a sleeping bag for a dog? I had never seen that.
  2. Hi Lind. Wow, some beautiful shots in there!! Three or four of them totally jumped off the screen. Congrats. I guess I'll have to go to Cape May one of these days.
  3. A great tool to lookup your amateur radio 'neighbors'.
  4. 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/
  5. Thanks Bruce. Absolutely great resource. I just posted it here: Thanks!!
  6. 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.
  7. Reginald Fessenden was also busy: https://www.nps.gov/caha/learn/historyculture/fessenden.htm From the Cape Hatteras website:
  8. It happened in Maryland, USA in 1900, just south of Washington D.C.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. Hey Glenn. How did it go? Is that you in the photo? Hard to tell 'cause it's tinyyyyy.
  14. 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.
