HH2/VA3MPG is now QRT

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the 7000+ stations who worked my good friend Jim, VA3MPG while on his 12 month Tour of Duty in Haiti with the RCMP doing humanitarian and drug enforcement service.

He has landed back in Ontario and is quite happy to be home. Haiti is a volatile and violent place.

We had our difficulties throughout it. With radio gear breaking and his tech support being myself in Ontario. No parts available to Jim, and also the difficulties of stuff…

100 Watts and a Wire: Episode 74

On this episode, Christian reflects on the Thanksgiving break. Will his passion for 75 meter phone reach a new level? Of course. We'll go inside the mind of a deeply finicky ham.

Comment on RM-11767

I support this revision of 93.317(a)(2) proposed in RM-11767.

The future default HF amateur radio station is not a 100-W transceiver…
