Get Your Summer Ham Radio Antenna Projects Going


Portable Ham Radio Station On A Bicycle

  Yes summer is almost here and the warm weather means it's time to get back to working on those Ham Radio Antenna Projects going. I know I am thinking about the 6 meter quad, 17 meter moxon and my scanner antenna project. In fact I am waiting for a 38 foot push up mast so I can raise and lower some light weight projects in the making. I can mount some heavier duty antennas on my metal push up mast. Of course now that I have a pick up truck maybe when I have some extra money I could find a good used tower. That is just in the future for now. Remember there are plenty of designs you can do with crappie fishing poles. The other idea is to use the grey pvc electrical conduit pipe and wire in some way. The ideas and designs are all up to you. I would invest in a swr analyzer when performing tests and adjustments so you don't interfere with anyone. Try searching through the amazon store below the posts and have fun. If you come up with any other ideas share them and leave a comment.

Spring Is Here And Summer Is Around The Corner...It's Time For A Ham Fest


 Check your local areas for any up coming Ham Fests. I know in my area RaRa Rochester Amateur Radio Association Ham Fest is almost here. You just need to check where it is going to be. For example here in Rochester NY it was at the Dome Arena, then it was in Greece NY at the Barnard Fire Exemps and then the following year it was at RIT Rochester Institute Of Technology. In fact here is a link to their webpage http://www.rochesterham.org/Hamfest.htm . It looks like it is at the Barnard Fireman's Field again. So if you are in the Rochester NY area June 6th stop by and check out some good deals. I my self loved it when it was at the Dome Arena and RIT because they were close and there was alot of room. So once again check out your local area for the Ham Fest going on in your area.

Ham Radio Project Books


6 Meter Cubical Quad Project ( not mine)

  There are plenty of books on Ham Radio Projects. We all like to keep busy and learn new things when it comes to Ham Radio. Granted some of us may have a better understanding of Electronics than other Ham Radio Operators do, but that does not mean that they can not learn something new. I remember when I was younger I thought I could not go to college because I was in the basic classes. I did not think I was smart enough. Well once I got interested in CB Radio and Electronics I found that I was capable of much more. I decided to peruse any kind of education I could. I bought books on Ham Radio Projects and other subjects as well. I decided that I was going to go to college and I did. I went and earned my AAS in Electrical Engineering and worked as an Electronic Technician for over 11 years. I have been working as a Computer Technician since 1996. My older brother felt the same
