Sweepstakes

W8EDU is on the air for single-sideband ARRL Sweepstakes.  If the QSO rate isn’t enormous, the laughter and comaraderie are.  The ten-or-so operators have logged about 110 contacts by now (pushing 1:00 AM).

Alumni postcards, away!

Just put 94 of these into the mail to all the alumni we could find in our old logbooks. If you’re here because you received one, please get in touch. If you didn’t receive one and would like to, please get in touch also: kd8oxt@case.edu.

The Library Begins…

We’re putting a library in the new lab, and just got our first volume: a 1922 edition of The Radio Boys’ First Wireless. This series is of a kind with Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and other syndicated children’s literature – except that it’s all about hams. We’ll be adding more technical books soon, but this was a fun place to start.
