* So you’re itching to try 6M… or you want to work on that VUCC?  Well the E-Skip season is upon us.  Be sure to visit these two sites for up-to-the-minute activity on 50 MHz and above.  First, near real-time maps of radio activity on 6M in North America is at  www.vhfdx.net/spots/map.php?Lan=E&Frec=50&Map=NA Then, check out the 50 MHz Propagation Logger at www.dxworld.com/50prop.html .  When the Magic Band opens, this second site gets fast and furious.

* Work NA1SS the International Space Station on 2M.  You too can QSO with the International Space Station using almost any 2M FM radio.  Some have done it with an HT.  The guys on the ISS listen at 144.490 MHz and transmit at 145.800 MHz (both FM).  It’s an odd split, but most modern FM radios can handle it.  The trick is knowing when the station is overhead.  Check out these two websites for help with that:  www.issfanclub.com and science.nasa.gov/temp/StationLoc.html Good luck!

* Map of Hams by Zip Code.  Wonder who lives there?  If it’s a ham, you can find out using this cool mapping utility provided by Vanity HQ. (Look for N4MC’s Ham Locator on the Vanity HQ home page). Just enter a Zip Code, wait for the map to render, then click on the blue pins for name, call sign and address.  http://www.vanityhq.com

    Excellant work Greg

    How do I go to the Weather program for underground like old page

    or is it there and I don’t see it

      Hi Rae,

      Thanks for the kind words. I have enjoyed learning how to do this and transferring our site to this new format.

      Having said that, the one page from the old site that I have had trouble duplicating here on the new site is the Weather page. However, I think I have most of it moved now. Take a lookand tell me what you think. Likewise, the Weather page is still accessible at the old URL: http://www.wilsonarc.org/htmls/weather.htm
