My amateur radio journey began back in the mids. I was about 12 at the time, with an interest in electronics that baffled my parents. With little to guide me and fear for my life as I routinely explored the innards of the TVs and radios in the house, they turned to the kindly older gentleman across the street from us, Mr.
Ever watch the Stranger Things series on Netflix? It also features some excellent electronics technology that was at its prime back in the 80s and is still kicking today. In one scene, three boys are sitting around their very first ham radio with their science teacher in tow.
Satellites reception Notice to fans of shortwaves I. Like for radioastronomya satellite receive system requires specific material that often counts among the accessories of a ham shack or the one of a listener. Satellite reception equipment. Let's first define what constitutes a typical installation before considering other solutions, more compact or integrated.
Are you looking for an inexpensive way to mount your J-Pole antenna or other lightweight amateur radio antenna? The Digital Broadcast Satellite DBS dish antenna mounts are a great way to mount your antenna to a house, mast, tower. And the best part is with a little asking around, you may even get the mounts and brackets for free.
This came from a technician with Icom. I have yet to blow one up! I've done some silly things along the lines of attempting to transmit with nothing hooked up and Looking back the latter could have been quite catastrophic.
My favorite ham activity is making contacts via satellites. Not only is there the romantic notion of sending messages into outer space, but you have to trace the orbit of the satellite with your antenna while tuning the radio, to compensate for the Doppler effect. Repeaters are automated relay stations that allow hams to send signals over a greater distance using low-power hand held transceivers.
From Long wire to Yagi. Dish antennas V. Sometimes very impressive when they exceed a few meters in diameter, not every amateur has the opportunity to use or even to see such antennas in the field. So many amateurs ignore how they are designed and what could be their performances.
Click here for Deutsche Version. Introduction, and why I have written all this. Based on my own experience and the description of my ham radio station, I would like to introduce a very fascinating part of amateur radio to all interested hams: communication via satellites and space stations in your shack at home.
One of my favorite things to do is talk with other ham radio operators through satellites or the International Space Station ISS. To do this, I stand on a rooftop and tune a handheld multiband radio while tracing the orbit of a satellite or the ISS with my homemade yagi antenna. Orbiting satellites such as AO, SO, and AO act as repeaters, relaying signals from low-power transceivers like mine back to hams elsewhere on the planet. So if you know where to aim the antenna, you can communicate around the world via space.
