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

Technicians & 10 Meters - Build an Antenna

This is an excellent video, especially for new hams and Technician Class license holders because it shows you how to build and test an HF antenna for 10 meters and particularly the 10m portion where Techs can operate using CW, digital like PSK and phone (voice). The 2nd video shows you how to tune the intenna and a nifty formula for calculating how much to take off of length!

Interesting story, my first HF contact was on 10 meters, voice and I had a QSO with a ham near Chicopee Kansas. WØKEU Keith Retzer so my first HF QSO was about 3 miles in distance!! This is a great video for making and testing various componenets and can be used for other bands just by changing the length of the wire!


  1. Sure, you can generate electricity in remote areas for your RV using your built-in battery and fuel, but if you've already done that, or are currently doing it, then you're certainly aware of how fast the price of doing so can stack up. Gasoline, whether in regards to using standard gasoline or diesel fuel, can be very costly. The cost of using such a fuel source, especially in the large quantities that a RV will require, is a constantly growing expense, which is all the more reason to take advantage of RV solar panels as a sound alternative energy resource.
