This ham radio blog is not a "traditional" blog. What gets posted here is permanent in nature, rarely "time sensitive".
You will find here, in addition to amateur-radio-related news and events, posts about ham radio equipment such as: transceivers, receivers, antennas, software and more.
In other words, anything I find worthy of note about amateur radio.
The pros and cons of HF antennas for limited space. A no-nonsense book.
Ham radio or amateur radio has fascinated generations. This Web site reveals the secrets behind its enduring popularity and usefulness.
Thinking beyond hurricanes and earthquakes. QRP CW, deep-cycle batteries on solar panels.
The cloud of plasma ejected to hit earth's upper atmosphere over the next few days. Anticipatg frantic 6m activity.
HF Antenna basics are not hard to grasp when explained in simple terms as they are in these e-books.

Will explore WSPR and WebSDR with it. Intend to brush up on my Python coding to brew a few apps of my own.
The ham radio call sign identifies a ham radio operator uniquely. The call sign is also one of the many other codes used in amateur radio.
QRP CW operation is like fly fishing. It takes skill and patience and very little equipment. Here is this addictive activity in a nutshell.

This ham radio blog plays an essential role in my "triple action" communication strategy.
This Web site is especially designed to assert itself among amateur radio related Web sites. (How? See the "Powered by..." at the bottom of each page).
This blog, on the other hand, is designed to offer an extra access to the Web site's content (through RSS feeds), thus augmenting its "visibility" on the Web.
Last, but not least, this blog also enables me to publish special timely posts containing my comments on amateur radio related news and events, as they happen.
In other words, I am using every available channel of communication, on the Web, to make my information accessible to the largest audience possible.
This blog is part of a unique "infopublishing" process that I use to give widespread access to my website's content.
Why use both a Web site and a ham radio blog to reach essentially the same audience?
Why not? It works!
Like so many other things in this world, amateur radio is changing.
This blog's mission is to help you stay tuned to the frequency of exciting changes that are occurring in amateur radio!
