Facts on Ham Radio

[html] Thought people might be interested in reading some of these facts on Ham Radio.  I've added it to the links as well so it can be found after this news item is archived.  Its kind of an Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) which I think would be a good addition to this site for new hams to find out more about what amateur radio is all about.

2 meter SSB NET and long distance signal report..

[html] There has been a new Net created to spark more activity on the higher bands� like VHF and UHF…Every Sunday morning at 10AM we meet on 144.200 and see who can work who on USB….Some of us run high power and large ant arrays and others run smaller equipment, it’s all open for the experiment…Then we also meet Sunday evening at 8 PM local time to try it again as some of us can’t make the morning get together…

I made a schedule with Doug, VE5UF who lives by Saskatoon to see if we could make the connection…The first night I got the freq we were going to meet on mixed up so we missed each other and the rest of us continued on..The following day (Monday) we rescheduled by e-mail and tried it again…I had everything all set up and was working on something else when I heard him tune up just before the scheduled time….So I called him and we had a good QSO for about 15 minutes, this is a distance of just around 300 miles… Doug was able to record the audio from me and send it around to the SSB group…The signal was moderate and then become very strong then faded again a little but we were able to hear each other fine the whole QSO…In the recording you can only hear me as his audio is not connected to the computer to be recorded…
This is the farthest I have worked with using meteor scatter etc….We are going to do it on a regular basis to see if it was just conditions or see if this path is possible regularily…..Skip, VE6BGT
