Other Plans

For argument more than a real proposal, the FCC has come up with an ultra-simple license plan - sort of an answer to CBers who want to get a ham license and talk with their buddies all over the country while sitting back with a cold beer after a day on the assembly line. Entry Form 1 Form 2 A Stow Scan milestone was recently accomplished when Johnny Bjornulf LA2BK, and Knut Gjertsen LA2PH mm, successfully transmitted and received solid copy color SSTV pictures between Norway and the ship...

Three Level License System

One plan that is attractive to the FCC because it is simpler than the six and seven level license schemes is the three level idea which would have a beginner, an intermediate and an ex pert level. This is a bit closer to the system used back in the 30'sand40's where there was the Class A with all privileges, the Class B with fewer privileges, and the Bootlegger with no official privileges. The Bootlegger Class had the advantage of no exams, the call of your choice, and the use of all bands -...

Why I Hate Wayne Green

I suppose I hate Wayne Green mostly because he thinks. He thinks that a QSO should consist of more than just an exchange of signal reports, names, OTHJs and type of equipment. He thinks that amateurs should do more than just try to see how many countries, counties, states, or whatever, they can work. He thinks that amateur radio is more than just a hobby, and that an amateur license imposes special responsibilities such as public service, making contributions to the advancement of the...

Repeater Wars

The FCC has been quite outspoken on one point if we cannot solve our owm problems they will try to solve them for us.

New Cdr Rotor

The new CDR Ham-ll antenna rotating system has an important advantage over the older Ham M units in that the new control unit has a separate switch for operating the brake. The inertia of larger antenna systems is a force that has to be consider ed. The sudden stopping of the brake action on the Ham M units put severe stresses on the rotors, the towers, the tower guys, the antennas themseives. Something has to give eventually when repeated stresses like this are present. The new control unit...
