#Morsecode is so MUCH FUN & can be very ECITIING. Especially when I can impersonate #seamanjones, "The Hunt for Red October" with my HUNT for #K1NF. There are times when patience is on your side. #AmateurRadio #hamradio #pota #parksontheair

My POTA flag caught the attention of the U.S. Coast Guard while patrolling the Ohio River during my P2P QSO with Dave at US-0679 Fire Island National Seashore, Long Island, NY to the banks of the Ohio River.

"On or around May 12, 2024, ARRL was the victim of a sophisticated network attack by a malicious international cyber group. ARRL immediately involved the FBI and engaged with third party experts to investigate.

This serious incident was extensive and categorized by the FBI as “unique,” compromising network devices, servers, cloud-based systems, and PCs...."

I have a question for people.

Is it possible to use AM radio to illuminate LEDs with a dipole antenna attached directly to the leads of the LED?

The local radio station, WLEO, broadcasts at 1170 AM at 200w day and night and what length antenna would I need to do this?

This is for an outdoor art project close to radio station's broadcast antenna.

What type of connector is this? It’s a power connector for a little transceiver.

Connector with two spade like elements perpendicular to each other.

We had some #sporadicE in late morning/early afternoon... but that was nothing compared to over 6 hours (!) of a HUUUUUUGE Es opening to Mallorca, Italy, Tunisia, Algeria & Greece!

Even logged 2 Greek stations as late as 2129z = 0:29am in Greece! 😱

And I have 62 IQ files totalling 45.1 GB + an hour or two (idk) of unattended scan on YT.

On live listening only, I made 173 logs. Could be more but FMLIST didn't cooperate at some point.

Europe's total? 9366 logs from 229 DXers 😬🤯✈ #fmdx

@arnie_dxer@mastodon.radio avatar

Meanwhile, Make More Miles on VHF reports about #sporadicE on #2m!

Some users of the site reported QSOs with stations located as little as 1000km away 😮 Imagine where the MUF was to allow such a short skip on 144 MHz 🤯

The best takeway though is that 2m DXers are coming back to voice contacts, as they notice #FT8 isn't that effective on such decent openings (at least if you use a Yagi of at least 9 elements that is 😆)

Had to try 40 - 10 meters to get a valid activation today. QSOs from west to east, north to south

That does not look right at all.
23dB attenuation in between the transverter and spectrum analyzer.
The attenuators are specced to 6GHz and 11GHz, so no problem there either.

TX gain maxed out and hitting the transverter with +20dBm on 144MHz and this is what I get.

Anybody about to buy a #Xiegu X6200? I'm looking at its specs at Radioddity as I just noticed it's out.

"Full Mode Full Band" = 160-6m + Band 2 FM & Airband receive only... damn... yet no 2m 🤡

MDS = -138dBm under unspecified bandwidth... only just a bit worse than my Airspy HF+ Discovery (-141dBm @ 500Hz bw)

Max power: 8W. Eight watts. X6100 had 10W 🤡

And this for 150% the price of the X6100, which is almost the same, only misses an #FT8 modem 😂

As much as I dislike power poles, and I do significantly dislike them, at this point it seems like trying to use anything else is like trying to use different AC electrical plugs and sockets. Seems like a lot of hams, well, went ham over them and made them into a de facto amateur radio standard.
