Today is Sunday. Here is the latest ham radio news Downeast Maine:
Don't let the winter blues or Covid-19 isolation get you down! Get your gear ready for Winter Field Day, scheduled for Sat Jan 30 and Sunday Jan 31. You can setup in a camper, a vehicle, a tent, or right in the comfort of your home shack. N1EP plans on particpating from the camper, which is located about 50 feet from the house. I will use a roll of speaker wire to fashion a multibanf HF dipole, and will erect a 2-meter jpole on the camper to boot! I just hope the camper's furnace is working. It's cold out there!
A few members of the Maine Ham Radio Society will operate in a socially-distanced manner from the woods shack of Brian KC1FXF. I know a few Ellsworth Amateur Wireless Association members also plan to join in the fun from their homes or elsewhere. Don't miss out!
Here are the details and rules: Winter Field Day
The FCC has decided to mandate a couple changes that affect amateur radio operators.
