FurFright FurryHams Field Trip?
So, just a thought here....
FurFright is about a 20 minute drive from W1AW, the Hiram Percy Maxim memorial station and ARRL headquarters. Would anyone be interested in taking a trip over there on Friday during their visitor operating hours (10am-Noon and 1pm-3:45pm) to get a chance to operate one of the most famous ham radio stations in the world?

RainFurrest 2011 Calling Frequency
I didn't see this mentioned anywhere, so I figured I'd repost it for anybody going to RF who missed it convention website
If you are a Ham Radio Operator, bring your 2 Meter Radio. RainFurrest is annoucing 146.58 as a calling frequency for convention attendees, while we can't promise anyone from the convention staff will be monitoring, many of us are Hams and have Dual Band radios.
I hope to see some of you there in a few hours!

In The Air Tonight
I have a Hustler 5BTV (five band trap vertical) antenna out by the garden that isn't connected to my Amateur Radio equipment because I haven't gotten around to burying radials and stuff. It just sticks up in the air about 40 feet and does little else until an electrical storm comes around. I have a storm about ten miles from me right now and the antenna itself is collecting enough potential from the air that it's arcing over to the grounded bracket.
As the arcing got faster and faster and the storm got closer, I decided that was a VERY bad place to be standing! Indoors now enjoying my fourth bottle of O'Dell's Five Barrel of the day and relaxing from all that gardening while thinking up some way to harness this energy!

Does anybody reading use a Wouxun handie? I'm after something to get me properly active on 2m but need to work to a tight budget, so these models seem ideal but I want to get some kind of personal recommendation on them first.

Nice QSO Party
H ere are my first thoughts and comments on the first Furry QSO party / Net:
Nice nets. I think I heard KC2WQW on 14.288 before he faded out. Or maybe the solar flare disrupted the ionosphere. Thanks for posting the log of the digital net that happened on 20 meters.
40 meters was better today. I heard some ham radio operators checking in. I'm glad that KC2WQW moved the net to 7193 KHz because I heard a lot of noise on 7188 KHz. Ronald's signal was fairly loud. But around 1:25 PM EST, he started fading away.
I tried to check in. Hey KC2WQW, the RRE station was me. I am using a Kenwood TS-440 and a 4 foot CB radio mobile antenna. I think I was only putting out 10 watts. Sorry we couldn't really have a conversation. I need to erect an outdoor antenna in the spring or summer.
Thanks to everyone who participated in both nets. I hope we have a few more QSO parties and nets soon.
Um, that is all I can think of.

Foxhunts at MFF
Well, for the past couple years I've been putting together a furry hams foxhunt at Midwest Furfest. I did so by borrowing a fox transmitter from my college's ham radio club for the weekend. Unfortunately, since I've graduated and am no longer at the University, I no longer have a fox transmitter.
So, I'm hoping someone else with some equipment can step in and run a foxhunt at MFF this year... If you're going to MFF and have a RDF transmitter, please let me know!
Thanks! Current Mood: okay

We have undergone a change! This is hopefully for the better. We will be able to do more customization, have better security, and have many more options for the users with this change.
Your Username (callsign) and password should be exactly the same as it was on the old site. If you don't remember your password, there is now an option to have it emailed to you.
There were 3 previous users that did not have email addresses defined. Unfortunately, those users got purged, since there is no way to accommodate them without an email address. You can re-register and add yourself back in.
Hurricane Watch Net Activated for Earl...
Earl - Hurricane Watch Net Activated - 14.325 USB Phone
The Hurricane Watch Net is active as of 8am yesterday morning, Aug. 30, on 14.325 USB phone.
Feel free to listen along. You can learn a little something each time you monitor one of these nets. Some of the net control stations, and reporting stations, really do a fantastic job under adverse conditions.
