Made 13 QSO's in the 6 meter sprint. Pitiful. Wouldn't have made 2 of those if it weren't for the Mid Atlantic QSO Party. OK--The Swan 250c isn't the hottest radio, the 5 element CushCraft is 35 year

Art: I'm with you. I don't see how using HF to coordinate contacts (even if a digital mode) is any different than using 2 meters to coordinate microwave contacts or running the bands when a new one i

Ev/David: I'll have to check out the AO program. The 2.15 dB is simple enough--Isotropic vs Dipole, and rightly belongs in an antenna prediction program. Ground reflection, however, to me, belongs in

Yeah...its part of membership, BUT, QST is available at some newsstands. Increased circulation, for most magazines, means more ad revenue, and, the demographic of the "free" subs is a good one--activ

I agree, and I use it. MUCH easier to find and peak a beam on a CW signal. This would provide an incentive to use CW, as it is not segregated like on HF.--Mike, WV2ZOW 43 have People who don't know C

What is the feeling on working cross mode in contests when the rules permit it? Such as answering a CW CQ on SSB, where, of course, the CW CQ occurs in the phone portion of the band. I do not have a

While 900 is not used in the USA for mobile phone, it is used by some carriers. Nextel holds licenses there and Cingular Wireless Data operates in the 900 MHz SMR band, 896-902 and 935-940 MHz. --Ori

Using a sequencer is always the safest way to go, but the Mirage does have RF sensing, so the chance of damaging it is quite small if you do not use a sequencer. While the Mirage has provisions for h
