Two weeks late. CW is coming along nicely. A pirate is fined, Sony killing off shortwave receivers
ZL amateur radio operators have limited trial access to the 60m band. I had an awesome QSO on 20m with my Inverted Vee and I won’t be looking out for the humanity star.
Today on the ZL Ham Radio Podcast, I discuss FT8, 20m and Inverted Vee’s. I had a QSO with HF Voyager and Brandmeister Hotspots in the Lower North Island
Today’s ZL Ham Radio Podcast covers High Power Hotspots and Priates on Amateur and Emergency services bands. As well as a new cubesat being launched on 12 January 2018.
Episode 4 of the ZL Ham Radio Podcast is out. In this episode I cover Underage drinking and the Wanaka police, New Years in Palmerston North, 10m, Propagation, Some changes ARRL are making and upcoming events.
Just because it’s the middle of the holiday period, doesn’t mean a podcast can’t go out. Although a short one. I hope you’ve had a fantastic break so far.
It surprises me that the 10m band is so dead between ZL and VK when the CB (27MHz) can be so busy with Australian and New Zealand Stations. Have HAMs just abandoned 10m?
Pre Christmas Madness, Hopefully you’re all sorted for your Christmas shopping. Today I talk, Repeaters, Hotspots, Elecraft, Some HAM history and Digimodes. This is episode 2 of the ZL Ham Radio Podcast.
