Our Alinco handheld for 2M has almost died and when a UK distributor was asked for a price to overhaul it was almost cheaper to buy a new one,
so now we are more than ever committed to using the internet.

 We now use 'EchoLink', an exclusive ham radio repeater linking web site.

Our EchoLink reference ID is 1070

Click 'here'for the software and details for 'EchoLink'. Remember you   MUST   be a licensed Radio Amateur.

For a comprehensive description of what EchoLink is all about 'visit' GJ7JHF website.

A surprisingly effective antenna for VHF, popular back in the 70s and seemingly getting a new spate of interest, is the 'Slim Jim' This was made popular by Frank Judd, G2BCX, a well known experimenter with aerials. The 'Slim Jim' is a variation on the 'J' Pole and is fairly simple to make from aluminium or copper tubing. It can also be made using 300 ohm ribbon and as such becomes an ideal portable VHF aerial to use, for example, inside a hotel bedroom.

Click   'here'   for details of the 'slimjim' in 300 ohm ribbon. Our thanks to Stephen Moss of  NRG KITS  for permission to reproduce the construction details, and a visit to their web site is recommended. Whilst producing professional FM equipment the site is most interesting and some nice pictures too.

We have now also been trying out the 'eQSO' system. This is the old M0ZPD linking system and we find it quite good. It does not replace iLINK but is also a good piece of software for us to play with. Give it a try, just download the software from www.eqso.net,install, and the setting up is pure childs play. This works link to link, PC to PC, PC to link and link to PC. Give it a try.
