Ideal Ham Radio Vacation?

Show Notes (contains affiliate links): Ideal Ham Radio Vacation

 

On this week's episode of Ham Radio Crash Course, a podcast roughly

based on amateur radio but mostly made up of responding to emails from

listeners, hosted by Josh Nass - KI6NAZ and his reluctant wife, Leah - KN6NWZ, Josh has a ham shack recommendation in the Ham Radio Minute, Leah offers up a blog post from survivalfrog about the best places to bug out in the  Emergency Preparedness Corner, and they both talk about planning the ideal ham vacation. 

The Email Correspondent’s Tower corrections came rolling in on how to pronounce Huntsville and on General Exam question explanations being not quite accurate last week. Thanks to Thomas and Cedric on info about filters and shift registers.

A debate over what to do with Russ’s 10x12 ham shack ensues, Charlie slips in some Fast and Furious, Greg asks why his IC-7300 shuts off when operating at over 50% power, Chris and Bunny share two sides of the same testing session (spoiler alert: Congrats  on your tech Bunny!). Bunny also suggests checking out Ham Village at DEFCON.

Rob, covert ECT co-producer, drops knowledge, as always, on an interesting ham related space topic: Apollo 11 fact checking. Dave talks about his QRP outing.

Kyle talks about the mesh network that is LoRa and gives a fascinating look at Hurricane preparedness for sailors. Greg talks about the importance of community in emergency preparedness. Gabriel recommends a video game hams might enjoy. Alex asks for recommendations on generators with low noise. 

James asks, “How did you get your wife to agree to the antenna on the roof?” Leah answers.

Gerald asks, “Does the thickness of a vertical antenna affect how much bandwidth it will be resonant on?  Second, do the radials need to be as thick?”

Nathan takes a look at the HRCC channel history and comes out with some questions about the origins of Baofeng Daddy. 

And the debate over York Peppermint Patty and cereal rages on. 

Have a drink with us! Today, we’re drinking… High Noon Sun Sips. 

 

Josh has a short tip with the Ham Radio Minute: Soldering irons are a ham shack must have. Hakka Soldering Station: https://amzn.to/3Bz4vbK

KN6NWZ, we talk about ISS SSTV, top disasters in US history and logging software. 

 

Have a drink with us! Today, we’re drinking… Vodka club sodas with butterfly tea and Tito’s. Having a sodastream means never having to remember to buy club soda. And butterfly tea is mood enhancer and antioxidant that turns from blue to purple when lemon or lime juice is added. Fancy stuff here folks.

Josh answers the questions:

How would an Icom 7300 pair with either a Chameleon Antenna F-Loop 2.0 Total Kit or a Wolf River Coils Silver Bullet 1000 Take it Along Kit? I was not sure how the 7300 would compare/perform relative to a Xiegu G-90 or Icom 705. 

 

  •         I noted you used a RigExpert AA-170 in your video on the Chameleon Wire Loop. My Internet searches reference an upgraded model - ZRE-230-Zoom. Would you recommend this model or have other suggestions?

 

  •         The ground radials on the Wolf River setup are 33 feet. Space in my yard is limited, will there be deterioration in performance if I am unable to extend out all 33 feet? Can they be laid out in other than a straight line?

 

  •         What coax would you recommend for a feed line for the Wolf River setup? Heat, humidity, and Sun are all issues here in central Florida. I am thinking 25 feet would be about the right length and cost is not much of a consideration.

 

  •         Are coax connectors all generic or are their specific manufacturers (and types) I should look for?

 

  •         In the most recent podcast, you mentioned an Anderson crimper tool. Any suggestions for a wire stripper tool?

 

  •         Last question, would a multimeter be a wise item to have to check installation? If yes, any recommendations?

01:41:54
Today we cover the need for CRAZY USB cables.  iTunes reviews that ask for CB radios coverage.  Leah is coming out strong on a new technician practice test.  And how to get started in ham radio in 2020.  Protip, if you wait till the end, we have a bit of a cathartic moment.  I hope you are all hanging in there.  Play ham radio, its an amazing stress reliever Beverage this week: Half Acre Beer Co. Big Hugz Imperial Stout Bewed with coffee & vanilla.  Josh comments:  Its a very approachable beer for those looking to try something a bit "big" without being too strong.  Leah comments: Coffee and vanilla forward.  Highly drinkable.  A very drinkable beer for Leah that is what she believes a stout should taste like.  Wonderful label art.  Want to give use a review?  Hit us up on iTunes.  We appreciate it!  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/ham-radio-crash-course/id1400794852 Interested in fox hunting?  Check out http://www.homingin.com/ Ham Radio Crash Course Merch: http://www.hamtactical.com Getting started in ham radio: https://youtu.be/bSF-q_qaqqg Monthly newsletter, stickers, private content:
