  1. WAS & more

    Got on the air Friday night to work a little JT65 before running out to see a show. Being Close to WAS (needing only SD), I posted on Hamspots.net that I was looking for SD for WAS, and then tuned up 14.076 on 20m. It was pretty busy but I wasn’t having a lot of luck making contacts so I went back to hamspots to see if I was being heard.

    As I understand, he did make contact at least once, but do to conditions they were not able to trade all the data needed to make ...

  5. Field day for a nube

    I joined the club a few months before taking the Tech and General class. Got my tickets in November.

    I felt welcome and accepted from the start in keeping with the traditions of the ham fraternity.
