Wonderous Wireless Widgets

Once upon a time, in the 1960's, I had a Technician license and worshipped at the alter of Heathkit and Hallicrafters - tubes, crystals and Morse Code. Now I am back, like Rip Van Winkle, waking up in a new world of wonderous wireless widgets. This blog is about that adventure and the folks at Alameda's ARCA club who are helping me along the way.

Rehearsal crew ready for Field Day!Saturday the 22nd is ARRL Field Day, when Alameda's Amateur Radio Club shows what can be accomplished by setting up from scratch under emergency power and making as many contacts as possible. Field Day will be held in the Harbor Bay Shopping Center in front of CVS.  You can't miss it - there will be two Alameda CERT Mobile Disaster Units, several pavilions and antennas everywhere.

On June 8th the team rehearsed pulling everything together to work out the kinks. In two hours ARCA members were on the air and talking to other hams.  Here is the tired, but proud crew at the end of the morning.

Join us Saturday!
