The Original Social Network?

E-mail Print PDF
Okay, it's time to come clean - I am a ham. That is, I am an FCC-licensed amateur radio operator, call sign KI6GDQ. I got into it a few years ago because my wife's parents and sister and brother in law are hams, and we all go camping in northern California every summer. Obviously a little hand held ham transceiver is not a bad way to communicate when there's no cell phone coverage, though the range is limited to a few miles in the mountains up there. And, living here in California, which a friend of mine notes is a beautiful land with a decidedly savage side, it's not bad to have a means of communication that doesn't depend on the grid, be it the electric grid or the Internet/phone grid. My in-laws live in Pacifica, south of San Francisco, which is hemmed in on all sides: the ocean to the west, mountains to the north and south, and the San Andreas fault to the east. A big earthquake could easily isolate them from the rest of the peninsula. So my father in law (N6FG) helps run a 2-meter repeater on a nearby mountaintop; he and and my mother-in-law (K6IIP) participate in local emergency response groups. A friend of mine joked that amateur radio is the original social networking tool. (Well, unless you count the postal service.) Early in the last century, when radio was young, the advent of high-power vacuum tubes made it possible for amateurs to build transmitters that allowed them to talk to other hams all over the country, and around the world, ionospheric conditions permitting. At night, when the lower layers generated by solar radiation dissipate, a vast electromagnetic mirror called the F layer forms several hundred miles up. Signals from the surface can bounce off this mirror essentially all the way around the planet. Hard-core DXers still go to great lengths with antennas and legal-limit (1500 watt) transmitters to make contacts with Morse code. (And then there are the truly crazy ones who go on expeditions to remote islands off Antarctica solely for the purpose of making nearly 100,000 ham radio contacts all over the world.)

Catching Amateur Radio Signals From Hotel Balcony:

E-mail Print PDF
In mid-January, I traveled to Phoenix, Ariz., for a work-related conference. Though I knew I'd have very little free time on the three-day outing (including travel), the opportunity to gather some signals in a far-away location was one I could not pass up. Packing a Grundig G5 portable receiver, a Uniden Bearcat 246T scanner and Pinnacle USB digital TV tuner made for an array that fit in my carry-on and still covered local emergency communications, AM/FM, longwave, shortwave and over-the-air TV signals. I opted not to bring any antennas beyond the stock whips attached to each receiver and no amateur radio gear, given that I'd likely have less than a couple of hours to operate. From my hotel balcony in suburban Scottsdale, I did find some surprises.
