The largest amateur radio and electronics swap meet on the planet is this week. Will you be there?
For those of you interested in using vintage and used test equipment you can find anything at Hamvention. It has often been said, ‘if you can’t find it at Hamvention you don’t need it.’
Amateur radio has stepped in to fill communication gaps in Nepal, which is struggling with power outages and a flaky Internet after a devastating earthquake on Saturday killed over 5,000 people. Though 99 persons have ham licenses in Kathmandu, about eight use high-frequency (HF) radios that can transmit long distances, while another 30 have very high frequency (VHF) and ultra high frequency (UHF) sets for local traffic, said Satish Kharel, a lawyer in Kathmandu, who uses the ham call sign 9N1AA. The hobbyist radio operators are working round-the-clock to help people get in touch with relatives, pass on information and alert about developing crises.
