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.

This Amateur Radio Blog's

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

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!
