New Wolf River Coils "Sporty Forty" coil

A couple of weeks ago at the Huntsville Hamfest a YouTuber named Hikin' n' Hammin' interviewed WRC regarding a new product the Sporty Forty coil. Although I sold my TIA WRC over a year ago, I still like their product and had recently rediscovered my MFJ 17 foot whip that I started using on a mirror ...

Re: POTA on 30M?

POTA is not a contest. SKCC is also not a contest (however they have designated contests with submitted scores). There are awards you can achieve with both groups. SKCC and POTA are welcome on the WARC bands, and also 60 meters.

Re: POTAPlus Chrome Browser Extension

I have been using it for a few months and it's helped me find spots for states needed. I'm down to HI and AK needed. I recommend using it for other things as well.

Re: What QRP Rigs do you have, and how do you use them?

I love QRP and doing POTA/SOTA. My QRP radios are (tr)uSDX, QCX Mini 20 meter, SW-3C, IC 705 and Xiegu X6100. Yes, I have too many of them, but each get used. Lately I've been using the x6100 most of the time and even though I like to switch up antennas, I seem to have been using my EFHW spark plug ...

Re: Bicycles On The Air

I just upgraded my POTA bike and I've joined the world of eBikes. I've had the bike for just over a week and have over 100 miles on it. Took the bike to activate POTA on Sunday and it worked out great. This is a "starter" bike, to see if I really like eBikes, and decided if I do, then I'll...

Re: POTA Uploader

I couldn't wait to activate a park over the weekend just to check it out. It is awesome!

Since I use HAMRS, I still had to email it to myself from my cell phone to my computer in order to upload. If there's a way to directly send from HAMRS, please let me know!

Re: Bicycles On The Air

Hey Rick, Those are some great tips. I took my crappie pole when I was first looking to see if biking and POTA would really work, and I was able to wedge my fishing pole and it sort of fit snug in the caliper of my front hand brake and the bike was the "tripod". I did another bike activati...

Bicycles On The Air

I like to incorporate hiking and POTA/SOTA activations as much as possible. Now that summer is finally here in Pennsylvania, I also enjoy bicycle riding. I've been working on different ways to incorporate both, and I recently saw a video of someone on YouTube doing a bike activation. That got the wh...
