ARRL Field Day 2018

To determine the effectiveness of the ARRL Field Day exercise and of each participant's operations, there is an integrated contesting component, and many clubs also engage in concurrent leisure activities (camping out, cookouts, etc.). Operations typically last a continuous twenty-four hours, requiring scheduled relief operators to keep stations on the air. Additional contest points are awarded for experimenting with unusual modes, making contacts via satellite, and involving youth in the activity.

Watch these videos to see how I found a fix and repaired the SDR radio to original capabilities.

I hope this helps everyone who buys one of these SDR radios. FOr more info on the radio itelf, I bought mine here:

And yes I am very happy with it.

FT8 DX on the Flex! | Awesome contact with my Flex 6300 & Maestro

Very cool contact with a Japanese ham radio station today. Check out this video of the contact. Japan is over 10,000 kilometers away so this is epic.
