“This coming weekend 11th/12th March will be the 80th running of the RSGB Commonwealth Contest. The oldest DX contest in the world as it happens.
Originally licensed in 1972 (Canadian Amateur), I upgraded to Advanced Amateur 1973. Just recently got back into Ham Radio in 2015, after having been away with University, Family, work, etc. I’m still working – as a Director of Solution Architecture for the CyberSecurity branch of Fujitsu North America.
Frank Eichel VE7AWV will be WARA’s presenter on February 21, 2017.
His topic is “Installing an Optibeam yagi on a short tower on the roof of my house”.
