Ham Radio Day 2013

A little bit earlier this year (Mar.16), and the weather should be great .!.


HR Day at GigaParts in Huntsville AL

This is a fun event, and a great opportunity for folks to learn more about this hobby. Doesn’t matter if you are newly-licensed, un-licensed, or an Old-Timer like me . . . something for everyone. Vendors, product demos, show&tell – I really appreciate GigaParts for hosting such an event. I plan to be there again to demonstrate my Subaru-deployable EmComm station. Last year I had HF and VHF radio, with simple quick antenna setups. This year I’m hoping to demo a portable VHF Winlink2000 email gateway. I’ll offer assistance and tips on how to configure your RMS-Express clients to use this service.
Sounds like a party .!. (here are a couple of pics from last year…)

The Shelby Hamfest 2010

To many in the SouthEastern US, the Shelby Hamfest is the ‘Grand-Daddy of em all‘. When I lived in Tennessee, it was a major annual event – everyone gathered at Shelby. After moving to South Carolina and then to Huntsville – it had become difficult to schedule and to actually get there. The hamfest then moved to a new location, and was reportedly less crowded – but just as good as ever. It was time to go and check it out…
I did.  It was Continue reading
