  • Radio Operators

    Just out of curiosity, how many of you guy are also Amateur Radio operators? I figure there has to be some cross pollination between the two fields

          I'm a Ham Op as well.
          Advanced Class for a long while.

          But I wonder if it's a good thing to throw call signs out on the net, given the ability ( if you are good in the Call Book ) to obtain too much information about yourself?

          We operate from HF to Microwave, mostly HF and VHF though.

          Somewhere I have a microwave oven with an antenna jack on the back and a microphone. ( I'll probably get cancer from operating that thing years ago )

            I'm also a ham radio operator. You have a point Harcosparky about posting your callsign.

                I used to have my First Class Ticket, then a advanced amateur. You are not suppose to give out information these days, especially if you give a location with your call sign.

                These days I have lost interest in such things, so I buy welders and weld.

                  Radio Operator?

                  Nah,,,,,,,
                  I'm still trying to figure out how to make the VCR stop blinking '12:00' over and over.

                  .

                    Actually it's interesting to just googl a call sign ....

                    For example one call sign posted in here worked Field Day from the summit of Grass Mountain in 1969. They ran a class 1A station.

                    Another call sign worked the June 1998 VHF QSO Party, scored 299 points on 144 Mhz and 103 points on 432.

                    And yet another ham here, licensed a looong time seems to not have done much in the way of contests or club activity.

                    I didn't go looking for any non-ham related data but I do use Google in the course of working other hams on HF from time to time.

                              QRZ DX? DE WD4FTS Wicked one .... he has an obligation to produce a clean signal, but your equipment manufacture and your installation must meet centin specs to avoid inference. If you ask the neighbor, he could possibly be part of the solution rather than part of the problem ! If he has 5 towers he knows a little about radio waves !
