WSPRLite Antenna Testing Methodology

Hello Operators.
Some time ago, Richard from SOTABeams was kind enough to send over a WSPRLite for testing and review. There were already a few video reviews on YouTube about the WSPRLite, so I was more interested in finding a more pragmatic way of presenting it.
After some time with the WSPRLite, I realized there would be much more potential, if I had a second unit, then use the set for simultaneous antenna testing and comparisons. I ordered te second WSPRLite, then got started on testing….

AnyTone AT-D868UV UHF and VHF DMR radio is now here!

AT-D868UV UHF and VHF radios are here!

AnyTone issued a press release some months ago, and we all became very interested in getting our hands on one of those radios.

It offers 10,000 Contacts, and 2,000 Digital channels, and 2,000 Analog channels. This should cover any use in the world we can foresee. There are 4…

That caught the attention of Steve Shroder KI0KY, an Assistant Emergency Coordinator for Colorado ARES Region 8. Steve explained it to us in an email, and we brought him on the show to…
