Have you ever considered using your aluminum gutter or down spout as an antenna? Here are two interesting articles that just might tweak your interest.
South Mountain Radio Amateurs are pleased to announce our Morse Code Net, held Tuesday evenings at 8 PM. Its purpose is to teach “real world Morse Code communication,” by one of SMRA’s best, N3SW – Scott Walker.
This is not a sit and copy format, but is designed to teach communication skills using current CW language, abbreviations, short cuts and pro-signs.
If you have ever wanted to learn Morse code, (or want to increase your speed and proficiency); or have always had an interest but need the motivation; this may be your opportunity.
Out of town or don’t live within the repeater footprint? Why not check in via Echo-Link using you smart phone or tablet app. We can be accessed at N3TWT-R, node 743026. Sure beats watching TV!
