About Us

We encourage ham radio operators to try something new with the hobby. Don't say you are bored, just try something new. I'm talking with people who have done some fun stuff that you can do too! Just like ham radio, newcomers and old-timers are welcome here.

Joe Taylor, K1JT, speaks at Masscon

We were delighted to hear about WSPR from Joe Taylor, K1JT. The passion that drives people to excellence is always here, but in this hobby we get to share and enjoy the fun, too! In fact, the WSPR project (pronounced like "whisper") would not even work unless other hams and SWLs joined in! Listen to K1JT at Masscon

99 Hobbies at Dayton 2010

This year at Dayton, my friend and Official 99 Hobbies Field Correspondent Cal, WA1WOK made a quick recording of a conversation he had with Gordon West, WB6NOA. This one is a quick two minutes, but you can get an idea of the buzz in the background, and feel for the energy present at this event! (photo: pacificon.org)

Masscon 2010 - proceedings (1110)

This is the fourth presentation that we listened to during the Masscon 2010 event in Westford, MA USA during the weekend of March 12-13, 2010. Chuck Kitchin, N1TEV, presents "Updating Classic Regenerative and Super Regenerative Circuits" to an enthusiastic audience at Masscon. Part of the fun of this presentation, of course, is the associated materials presented via overhead projector. But you can get most of the content from the audio portion that we present here. The advance materials described the talk like this: Modern components allow Hams to modify the classic regenerative and super regenerative designs of the past. Ham radio experimentation is an excellent electronics teaching tool (as well as being FUN) and can lead to new discoveries in radio communications. This talk will cover the theory and modern applications of these classic circuits. We are glad that they used the word "fun" because this presentation was great for so many reasons, and it really was fun, too! Conferenc...

Masscon 2010 - proceedings (0900)

This is the second presentation that we listened to during the Masscon 2010 event in Westford, MA USA during the weekend of March 12-13, 2010. The only way to appreciate the full effect was to be sitting in the audience. However, you can get an idea of what it was like if you listen to this, while watching the overhead slides from the talk, which are available from www.masscon.org. Dave Siegrist NT1U and Bruce Beford N1RX discuss the design and construction and testing of RF filters. Conference materials can be found here.

Masscon 2010 - proceedings (0810)

I was delighted to be in the audience during the Masscon 2010 event in Westford, MA USA during the weekend of March 12-13, 2010. My friend Scott Andersen, NE1RD, put the event together, and it represents over a year of planning and preparation by Scott and his staff. The podcast you are about to listen to is one of the presentations given during this convention. The only way to appreciate the full effect was to be sitting in the audience. However, you can get an idea of what it was like if you listen to this, while watching the overhead slides from the talk, which are available from www.masscon.org. There is something indescribable that happens when you have a room full of people who share a passion. Hopefully you will hear it. Allison Parent, KB1GMX, presents at Masscon 2010. You can view the slide show here while you listen to the presentation. Conference materials can be found here.

D*STAR with Cal

Today I talked with Cal, WA1WOK about D*STAR. We discussed the past, present, and future of the hobby (AM, SSB, digital modes) and specifically how D*STAR fits in. You can get in on the ground floor of this new part of amateur radio, if you want to. Listen in and you will get an idea of what to expect with this new mode, with the help of guys like Cal who can show you the ropes.

My hamfest vacation - part one

I stopped in Richmond, VA on the way to Florida, and visited the Richmond Frostfest 2009. It was a decent-sized hamfest held on the international raceway. I talked to several very interesting people who have done some unusual things with ham radio. This was a lot of fun!

My hamfest vacation - part one

My hamfest vacation - part two

I talked to quite a few people at the Orlando Hamcation 2009, covering lots of ham radio subjects, as well as some not-so-technical things. What a great time, and in the winter sun! Kick back and enjoy this one. It's a little long, nearly 25 minutes, but close your eyes and pretend that you are in Florida.....

New blood

This morning I joined our monthly breakfast with the PART radio club. I had a chance to interview Kimberly Stewart, KB1PZG, who was licensed in February of this year. She is bright, articulate, and shows an obvious passion for the hobby. I think we will be hearing a lot about her as the years go by. Links: PART of Westford: www.wb1gof.org
