As a newbie to HAM I have, however, been a guitar player since the Beatles came to America. Never mind my age 😂. I am excited to take this CRAM course given by Kim. Understanding bandwidth, mega and giga hz is fascinating. I am relating clock speed cycles to my guitar amplifier. With this said, a HAM Antenna and a music speaker should rather be synonymous in theory. Any thoughts? I simply think transmitting one's voice through the air is not only fascinating but mysterious as well. Almost or well could be very spiritual. Though the average person who uses 5g phones take them for granted HAM operators know the heart of the matter. Funny how Heinrich Hertz' last name means heart in German. Simply fascinating. I owe this new experience to Charlie Downey of Midvale who inspired me to become radio-active. A hearty 73 to all. Sorry to be so windy here. I'm excited! See MoreSee Less

I know there will be lots of pics from this event.  Such a fun gathering to watch the eclipse and play radio.

40m dipole is working great at the eclipse campout.  Dipole center is 36 feet up, insulators are 25 feet.  Furthest 40m contact at my station is Tahiti.
