Cheap Morse code trainer.

During our last meeting a few members expressed their interest to learn Morse code. I found a small and simple electronic project that would help with the training. I know this project may be a little over some of our members expertise, but how else do you learn new things?.

On this article the author shows the schematics, list of parts and the source coded he used to build his low cost Morse code trainer. If anyone is interested on building one of these we could order the parts in groups to lower the cost and save on shipping.

Field Day 2011 – June 25-26!

Mark your canlendar

Mark your calendar. This year ARRL Field Day is approaching. We have less than 2 weeks.

Field day is the single most popular on-the-air ham radio event held annually in the US and Canada. Each year over 35,000 amateurs and people interested on the hobby gather with their clubs, friends or simply by themselves to operate.

To learn more about field day please visit: http://www.arrl.org/field-day.

Joe KB2TJE will be hosting this years Tryon ARC field day at his QTH: 25 East, 11th Ave Gloversville Ny. Join us on Saturday and Sunday. We will have multiple HF and VHF stations. There are plans for a digitalmode station and also we will have some older radios for everyone to see and use. You don’t need to have a ham license to talk on the GOTA station. Join us and experience the trill of talking to other hams across the world.
