Well, now you can narrow it down to only Google knowing your business. Ouch, guess that is not so narrow. Google-SSL

Probably the first time I ever went to Dayton not looking for anything. I figured if something jumped out at me then I would entertain it but I have spent so much time building out the station over the last couple years I am just about done. Well, you are never done but you know what I mean. Myself, Ray W2RE, Frank W2IX and newcomer Bobby KC2UPN (Rays son) flew out Wednesday and had a nice couple days to relax, drink lots of Guinness and eat poorly. As always we stay at the Crowne Plaza which is the ONLY place to stay when you go to Dayton. There is always so much going on with everyone hanging out and partying it really is a great time! I took a few pictures which I was ...

Past few morning have developed some very good openings into Asia to the East coast U.S. Each morning Jimmy BX5AA has been a beacon with a very strong 59+ signal. I found a spot just above 14.200 and called CQ, worked JA, DV9, VR2, WH2 and BA4's. Had a nice little pileup going :) Here is a video of Jimmy BX5AA on 20M.

Caught this on the Tower Talk reflector. I think this is a perfect (but unfortunate) example that even with the best protection there is really nothing you can do when you have a direct strike. I was really amazed with the cracked foundation, I never thought that would/could happen.

Always nice to see articles on Amateur Radio, this was sent to me from W2PA and I thought it would be nice to share with those who missed it. National Public Radio (NPR) did this nice article recently. There is also an interesting comment made at the bottom of the article from Laura Drake.
