Standing Wave Presentation

This from what I hear is a great lesson on standing wave. It is not short so get some coffee and snacks and settle in when the cold weather keeps us inside. For Joe WØMQY it will be after he does his antenna work in the ice and snow. HaHa !!

 

Woofferton Shortwave Transmitting Station

Take a look at this !! The Woofferton transmitting station is owned and operated by Encompass Digital Media, as one of the BBC's assets which were handed over as part of the privatization of World Service distribution and transmission in 1997. It is the last remaining UK shortwave broadcasting site, located at Woofferton, south of Ludlow, Shropshire, England.

Learning HF Bands One At A Time - 10 Meters

Eric KJ4YZI has a great YouTube channel and he is starting a new series...

"This is where you start. Video #1. I have done a quick video on each one of the HF bands to educate the newcomer to the hobby or for anyone who wants to learn. You can learn here about each one of the bands we have, such as when you can operate these bands, how long a wire antenna for that band should be and what you might find when exploring each band. I hope everyone who watches this that may be new to the hobby will learn from this. PLEASE comment below, give a THUMBS UP for the effort of these videos, subscribe and stay tuned for each new video released."
