Wayne Overbeck, N6NB, teamed up with W6IT to set new world distance records on 2.3 and 3.4 GHz this past summer. This talk describes how it was done and also retells some of the storied history of the Trans-Pacific Tropospheric duct that has enabled Californians to work Hawaii on the VHF+ Bands ever since it was first accomplished in 1957.
A personal note: I’ve been involved in many aspects of amateur radio over the 58 years I’ve been licensed. It’s been fun. I did some of the earliest portable e.m.e. (moonbounce) work–in places ranging from Alaska to the Utah-Nevada border. Early on I found out I liked radio contests and also building things for the VHF, UHF and microwave bands. In the 1960s I discovered that “mountaintopping” made it easier to win the VHF/UHF contests that are sponsored four times a year by ARRL, the national association for amateur radio. By 1980, I had finished #1 nationally in the single operator category of 12 VHF or UHF contests–all while operating in a parked van or camper on various mountaintops from coast to coast. That resulted in several scoring records that were never broken under the section multiplier scoring system. (In the 1980s latitude and longitude-based grid squares replaced ARRL sections as multipliers and then more categories were added, including the rover, high power, low power and QRP categories). Under the new system I won another 19 contests nationally as a rover and seven in the QRP portable category, setting scoring records for the January, June and September VHF contests and the August UHF contest.
With the success of the first t-hunt in several years sponsored by the Downey club we are planning on many more in the future. The next hunt will be held August 29th at 9am.
Once again the starting point will be the top of the multi story parking structure behind the Kirkorian theater in Downtown Downey. Refer to the June ‘15 Q5 for details.
Bill will talk about Field Day and plans for this years event.
