Low Band DX Antennas From Rich's February 2017 presentation. Some timely strategies for working the low bands during the solar minimum with mostly home-made wire antennas that don't require a massive amount of real estate.
DXCC HONOR ROLL IN ONE SOLAR CYCLE It's more about the journey and education along the way than it is about the final achievement. An informative and humorous look at reaching DXCC Honor Roll with a "little pistol" station.
DXCC HONOR ROLL ANTENNA STRATEGIES As the title suggests, this presentation is about optimizing your antennas for working DX with a little about propagation and operating skills too.
The HENRY-1 high altitude balloon launch went off without a hitch (well, very few anyway) on Saturday, March 18th 2017. We felt it was deserving of a webpage, with an hour-by-hour narrative, photos, videos, and links to lots of sites with information about high altitude ballooning: Read more…

CW Trainer: CW training software programs from Ray Goff, G4FON. This free, downloadable software will help you get up to speed for passing the 5wpm test or boost your skills to a more practical level like 20 or 30+ wpm. It is designed to use the Koch Method that has proved so successful in teaching new cw operators. It emphasizes starting with just a few characters at a time, but at full speed, then gradually increasing the number of characters (rather than learning all the characters first and then trying to increase your speed).
VOACAP Excellent and easy to use online propagation prediction tool.
