- 01AprHF Radio Setup demo
The Douglas County Amateur Radio Club will be hosting a demonstration of setting up an HF Radio station using simple portable antennas at Wells Overlook from 9am to 12:30pm on Saturday April 1. This event is open to anyone interested in Amateur radio or emergency communications. Visitors will have an opportunity to learn about radio operation and simple antenna setups as well as talk on the air. We will be demonstrating Voice, Code, and Digital modes of operation. (An amateur radio license is not required, this event is open to everyone.)
I worked with Don for several years at Bendix-King. You won’t find anyone nicer and more willing to help than he was.
WSPRnet for monitoring wspr stations
PSK Reporter for monitoring a large variety of automated station spots. It is not mode specific like wspr net and has postings from many other digital modes.
