Ham Stuff

HF Radio Control Via The Internet - A friend of mine who is a ham recently moved from his contest QTH in Honolulu to Las Vegas - to a place where PRB-1 doesn't apply. So we were faced with the question of how do we use all those big antennas in Hawaii when we are not there. Here's how we went about solving the problem. (more)

Soundcard To Radio Interface - This is a simple homebrew interface that you can make to connect a radio to a computer soundcard when you want to use it for PSK, SSTV, DVK software, EchoLink, or other programs. Cost of the parts is about $20 at your local Radio Shack store. (more)

Time TIP: If you are using software that needs the correct time (logging, beacon, etc.), there is absolutely no reason for your Windows clock to be off. Windows has a KNOWN PROBLEM with the clock. It reads the HARDWARE clock when it boots, but then it attempts to keep time with a SOFTWARE clocks which doesn't always work.... Go to the ANALOGX web site and download a small free program called ATOMIC TIME SYNC. Then go to the National Institute Of Standards web site and find an NTP time server near you. Configure ATOMIC TIME SYNC to set your clock every five or ten minutes, and let it run all the time. You'll never be a second off again.

 

Telnet to KH2D Cluster Nodes
Due to the increasing amount of profanity, infighting, and general nonsense that is seen daily on the DX cluster, both of my nodes will be turned off on January 1, 2004 and no longer be available for use.

The Florida QSO Party is held every year in April. It's an interesting contest, both for the out of state hams and the local guys, because a lot of mobiles are tooling around the state making sure that all the counties (multipliers) are heard on contest weekend. (more)
