    10m Activity This Morning

    Well I was not a HAM then but a SWL but was real heavy into model 19 machines with the electronic converter with the "cross" tuning display...those machines had a certain smell when they were running that was entoxicating...running through reams of paper and many ribbons...those were the days

    TBS card

    May be a BIOS issue with the new box...TBS drivers can be a real pain in the arse to deal with and getting help from them is difficult. Some of the older cards have issues with newer operating systems, but that does not seem to be your issue since the card and drivers work on a older WIN 10...

    40/20 meter QSO/Net for Satguys hams

    Cool...as far a C band on a mini-dish, one of my friends on this forum, comfortably numb, did a lot of experimentation using a 1.2 meter dish last summer. If you PM him and tell him I sent you, he would help you out. I even screwed around with it on my 76cm and was surprised on what I was able...

    40/20 meter QSO/Net for Satguys hams

    Hi and thanks for responding. I don't think the idea has died but when I thought of it we were in a normal way of life with everyone working and such. Now with Covid-19, I am home and not working for awhile and I don't know about Michael and Brian. Brian is in NorCal and Michael in SC I...

    Icom IC-7100

    Hey guys, I bought two of these with the thought of using one for a base station, which I have and then one mobile in my truck. However, I have decided to go another route and have a like-new rig available. Will let it go for a real good price to a forum ham...if not then QRZ. PM me if you...

    40/20 meter QSO/Net for Satguys hams

    Well that's two who are interested...that's a start. I think it would be fun to get together on the air and rag chew for awhile. I could very likely work Brian in NoCal but not sure about Michael way out East with my loop on 40 that may be pushing it but it's worth a try! The loop certainly...

    40/20 meter QSO/Net for Satguys hams

    I do know that there are quite a few hams on this forum and was wondering if there is any interest in a forum QSO/Net? I would organize it but I live in an HOA and my magnetic loop does not quite cut it.... 73 Jim K4ECP Sent from my iPhone using the SatelliteGuys app!
