Operating from Distant Locales

At the November 19, 2011 meeting Rick Cook, AB4U, a regular guest at the DDXG monthly meetings, gave a presentation on operating from distant locales.  From foreign countries, to boats, to remote areas in Texas, the presentation covered how to prepare for remote operations and pictures of some of the places he has operated from.  Rick was kind enough to allow us to post his presentation.

A PDF version of Rick’s presentation is linked below.

Presentation on Solar Numbers

Robert, W4BNO, gave a presentation on “Solar Numbers and Amateur radio propagation” at the October 2011 monthly membership meeting.  This presentation discussed Solar Flux Index, Sunspot numbers, K index, A index and how these affect the upper atmosphere.  This also helps in understanding the solar reports from WWV and others.
