CHANGES TO CLEAN SCOOP CERTIFICATE REQUIREMENTS

We have had horrible cooperation from the weather for the first 3 events and our on the air time has been limited so the club decided to change the qualification for the certificate. Now you only need to QSL 5 of 7 of the Special Events to get the clean scoop certificate !!

Good Luck and 73 from SEKARC

Google Glass and Ham Radio


Technology... how much is TOO much ? For me personally this is too much, well unless I had unlimited financial resources. It would be easy to get in a habit of just TXing psk31 but I try to not stick with that too much because even that requires a basic computer to decode. Our computers are great as long as there is electricity and a working computer. But if you lose power in an emergency or your surroundings, this type of communication tech might leave you a little short.


A lot of us have set up remotely and lugged our pc's to the field for psk and logging. I will probably do that many times this year. Technology like shown below bring the remote technology to an entirely new level. It is fascinating, so if you have the will and the way... give this a try ! Or just check out this video!
