To promote and explore the hobby of amateur radio. Providing quality training for all amateurs and in all aspect of the hobby.
Always interested in finding new things to read and ideas....so enjoy ....
Google search is useful but if you have a spare 1/2hr and just want something random but of interest to you then there is no better tool than stumbleupon. I just re-discovered it for ham and amatuer radio and have uncovered some real nice pages in the internet. Register yourself, register your interest and then hit the stumble button .... picture example below.
Found this list .... particularly found of the 160m comment
Action or Activity
2M SSB or CW
Working the "weak signal" bands can be fun!
6M - what a great band!
Operate the "magic" band on SSB or FM
10M - This band can really jump
Join 10-10 international and KEEP THE BAND OPEN!
75 Meter Roundtables
Sometime called the groan and moan nets!
160M – Get on the band
The Gentleman's Band – May need a different antenna
Is a great article and I love the idea of Hamradio extending the internet via wifi routers. Certinaly worth a read as it take you onto : http://wndw.net/ and finally the wonderful Linksys WRT54G gets everywhere ....
one of the few routers around that can be "hacked" and the signals boosted if you have poor wifi performance from your broadband supplier router .... my BT router is terrible ....
Seems my previous postings all went under the 2m dipole blog ....
I have updated and hope folks will get some use out of my recent reading.

This looks interesting and one to discuss with our chairman and club members if they know a little more about the science behind it.
