    DX Engineering

    After living out here in the Buckeye for almost 5 years I finally walked into DX Engineering in Talmadge, Oh. yesterday! With all the China Virus restrictions over the last 2 years the store usually wasn't staffed. Well I needed some coax so I decided to go and check out the store. First you...

    Field Strength Meter

    I feel the need to buy a Field Strength meter. I'm going to try something a little different, than in the past, with the new truck antenna install. Do those cheap Astatic SWR/Field Strength meters work okay or do we need to spend some serious coin on a meter. This would just be for my own...

    11 Meter Forum Call Channel

    I remember back in the early (Charger383) days of this forum we used to use 27.475LSB as a forum call channel. Is there a reason that fell by the wayside? That was 2 skip cycles ago and there was a boatload of forum members and others on it all day long. I was nice to get away from the "SSB...

    I Want My Truck back!

    Alas...........my assigned truck is in the shop again! This means no radio fun and tweaking the installation fun and headaches for me. The spare truck I'm in doesn't even have a reasonable antenna system that I would trust with my box stock PC76! Driving me nuts! Adding insult to...

    Politics

    Again, I feel that maybe I'm missing the point of "The Worldwide Radio Forum". I thought coming in here would be to talk about and discuss things about radio and radio related topics. Seems there are a few lost souls who don't get it! For example I will quote what this forum is all about(see...
