VE2DPE's Ham Radio Blog
This ham radio blog is not a "traditional" blog. It is mine and yours.
In other words, this is not a personal journal of all my activities on this site, or of my observations and comments on what is happening out there, in the amateur radio world.
Unlike a "traditional" blog, what gets posted here is permanent in character ... instead of being "time sensitive" and of temporary interest. See blog entries below.
What gets "air time" here has lasting value for you and the hundreds of other visitors who seek information here, every day.
This blog is a special place where you can take in, at a glance, what I have posted as being significant over the past weeks or months. By significant, I mean events and amateur radio related information that I consider worthy of your attention and, therefore, worth spending the time to read the details behind them.

A True SDR Receiver
IMHO, the QS1R SDR is the best receiver to pick signals out of pileups, QRN, QRM and poor band conditions.

It's so hot today (31C/88F) that I fear my 80M dipole may soon tune down on 160! Joking of course ;)

The Role Of This Ham Radio Blog
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.
A Proven Infopublishing Technique
I use a unique "infopublishing" process to give widespread access to my content, not only with this site, but with all my other sites!
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!
