Hello and welcome to my Radio amateur links page.
This page is my attempt to design and implement a start point in the internet with info valuable to all amateurs. Most ham-wise important websites are gathered here, and when you click a link, a new window always pops up to that website.
a few headlines follow:
I got Paul N0NBH's licence (thanks Paul!!!) to translate his "table for solar data panel" (black panel on the left side) to Greek. Here is the link to it!
O Paul NONBH μου εδωσε την αδεια να επαναδημοσιευσω τον πινακα απο το site του με τις ερμηνειες των μεγεθών στον αντίστοιχο πινακα που βλέπετε στα δεξιά (μαυρο πινακάκι). Πατήστε εδώ για εμφάνιση (ανοιγμα νεου παραθύρου)
Do your QRP operations on 14285 suffer QRM from SV stations? Tell them to QSY to the official GreekNet frequency, 14340! est. 1969 by RAAG ! (EER)
Pse mail their callsigns with a relevant report (time, date, offensive language)
to "raag-hq .--.-. raag.org" with message title
"Deliberate QRM on QRP calling frequency 14.285 by SV#XXX - complaint"
(where SV#XXX pse enter actual callsign)
pse, do this only if you have their SV callsign to report, and keep the complaints honest - do not complain if they agree to QSY!
We together can stop this mess on QRP calling frequency!
Rebuild of my 3cm (10.368 GHz) equipment is underway. Initial tests were very encouraging - stable and powerful. Now, I am searching for a coaxial relay able to switch 2W on 10 GHz to use as a TX-RX switch!
I am getting more fun out of it that I ever hoped for!
I got a new Alinco DJ-G7 for use as a signal source for my 10GHz transverter.
SV9 land has a repeater (RS-11) out@ 1298.275, -28MHz, and QSO's are frequent up there.
Solarcycle 24 is emerging - 10m are open on daytime (sometimes until 21.00 Z )
As greyline shifts towards northern hemisphere, the ionospheric clouds step slowly to higher latitudes on their way to Europe. Peak is on June 23rd, but solar activity expanding along with cycle24 rise slope will probably lengthen the Sporadic-E and TEP period until... December and probably on! Stay tuned.
Sunspots info available on Solarcycle24.com
Latest ICOM all mode - all band DC to daylight tranceiver IC9100 announced as of 23rd of August, 2009, in Japan.Prerelease Brochure available here. Noone has still laid their hands on the actual rig for review, afaik.
Yet, Alinco presented the DX-SR8 T-E HF rig. It is a simple, basic, yet cheap as bread HF transceiver for entry-level HF experiences on a minimal cost. Shame it hasn't got the 6m band covered...
Almost the same fate for flagship V-U-S Icom's rig, IC-910. The replacement rig IC-9100 has the same features, includes HF and IF DSP, but it hasn't been into production yet.
