  • I have been away from this website for 9 months, and will now be updating it weekly with over 30 new items. Also I traded my MP for a Mark V, so watch for more info on that radio.
  • This weekend I tried the HamCap propagation software after reading about it in QST. It certainly lives up to reviews and integrates with DX Atlas. I found that it clearly showed me areas of the globe that were open to me (the lighter the map areas, the better chance for good propagation and Signal to Noise ratio) based on my location and the type of antenna I was using. I compared this to the stations I was able to work and found it worked very well. It also explained why I wasn't able to talk with stations on the lower bands during the day. Very worthwhile download.
  • I also tried the Romac Sound Card Manager which creates a profile for each piece of Ham Radio Software that you use and remembers the sound card settings. Particularly useful for PSK, RTTY and SlowScan TV.
I want to continually improve this site and welcome any ideas or links to other ham radio web pages. If you have any suggestions, ideas or input, please contact me.
