Last Sunday 10/10/2010 the LeaderHerald printed an article about Ham radio in our area. If you missed the article please visit: ‘Hams’ on the radio – LeaderHerald.com. Thanks to the Leader Herald for helping promote our hobby.
Bob (KB2TDG) has put together a list of the most used local repeaters. This is a good guide if you are starting up or just got a new radio and want to program the most used local HAM frequencies. Click here to download the list.
If you have more frequencies please leave them as a comment.
A collection of 5 videos from the Tokyo Ham Fair, that took place last weekend, have been posted on YouTube. Among the videos is one showing ICOM’s eagerly-awaited IC-9100 (HF~1200MHz) transceiver.
The other videos are: Kenwood, Vertex Standard/Yaesu, Alinco, Comet and a field QRV tool exhibition

Yesterday I was trying to cancel my XM/Sirius radio for second time (nothing against them, it is just that since the merge I didn’t care for the new station lineup anymore.)
I decided this time to record the call to have it for my records. After the call was ended I plaid the recording back and realized how bad I sound. I don’t mean because of my accent, I just don’t sound like I think I do.
I imagine this is also the case over the airwaves on the rigs mic. I looked for an explanation and found an interesting answer in popular science dot com. I would like to share it with you, please click here.
