Attention All Club Members!
The Jefferson & Clarion county Basic SKYWARN spotter training course will be held on March 31, 2015 6:30 PM at the Corsica Volunteer Fire Company 201 Main St. Corsica, PA 15829.
SKYWARN is a group of trained severe weather spotters that report directly to the National Weather Service.
The course is free. The method of registering hasn’t been released yet. I will post it when I get it. It is not a requirement to be an amateur radio operator to attend the class. Hams are encouraged to take this this course however.
If you are a Pittsburgh WFO SKYWARN spotter, you are requested to attend a basic course once every 5 years. This is mainly to update spotters and the NWS data base.
Any questions, contact me at KA3YCB@arrl.net

Now, if you look at the picture below, you can see that the S-meter has a very dim light, and also the two knobs down at the right (shortly after this picture was taken, those two lamps went out)
Now look at the picture at the right, quite a difference isn’t it?
LED’s found at RadioShack and also the resistors needed (1/4w 180-220 Ohms)
Hello everybody, now we are going to have some fun! As some of you new hams might remember, at the last meeting I promised that you were going to play with some of my rigs at upcoming meetings, and I thought you should get acquainted with the easiest rigs first, so, take a look at the […] […]
Hi All, Here’s the project I’m looking to undertake and I’m wondering if anyone has any particular suggestions about what might work best in this area? I’m looking to put up an antenna(s) for 160-20 meter use. I already have a 10 meter dipole, which also seems to work ok on 6 meters, but am willing […] […]
