Hello fellow 222 Sprinters, I was up on the 100 ft 222 MHz tower at 6PM trying to see if I could swap out a rotator to replace the T2X that was broken in the Sept Contest. It has no beam indication,

Hello Paul aka BUG man, Well activity begets activity. I was always impressed that you got on and were active from your spot on VHF. The problem is that if no one ever gets on, then no one will point

Hello Jeff and fellow Sprinters! Things sure seemed different here in Maine as compared to K1TEO's results. There was darn little evidence that the band was up at all. The good news was that it was n

Hello John, For the higher bands of 144 and up, I used to think that it all depended on your horizon angle (The angle from your antenna to the horizon) If there was any obstrruction in front of your

Hello Mike, The culprit is most likely rf from another band getting into the TS-2000 and causing the problem. Best way to test is to get an HP or similar rf power meter and hook it to the 1296 antenn

Amen! One really good way to foster activity is to run extended range skeds on any of the VHF bands. That is a great way, to generate interest and build activity on the air. When I was a kid, I used
