His call is VE3SSP, when I look it up on QRZ it come out as someone else....from Onterio though! Maybe it ran out, and someone else picked it up?? I could just ask him but he's a master of BS

Looks like that call sign is still valid for the name: Steven Patriquin 402 TOKE TIMMINS, ON P4N 6V7

If the call sign had expired, it would not be reissued for several years. Any ham, Canadian or U.S. can regain an expired call sign within a couple of years of its expiration.

You can tell him you were looking through a Ham radio site and ran his call sign and there seems to be a problem. His call is listed under another guy's name. He should check into it, must be a screw up in the government's system.

If he's a well known BS'er, this call sign of his is likely more of the same. If you confront him about it, he'll probably just spew forth more BS to cover for the earlier BS.

So, you know this guy???? [img]smile.gif[/img] Well his name is Steve, but last name is Gracey, hummmmm doesn't seem to match up! Talking to him, he does seem to know HAM radio, but the call sign thing is odd, at best. Thanx for the input, and yes if I confronted him there would just be more BS!!! Lucky for me, I only have to deal with him on holidays etc.

Well guys I've been studying for my test and I take it April 10th.. I hope Matt Faber is doing the same.

I've narrowed it down to these models to buy for now. They are 2 meter. Anyone have an opinion on one or the other? Thanks if you do.

I bombed the test a few months ago when I took it. I though I had enough of the answers memorized to pass, and every question on the test I remembered reading on my answer sheet but couldn't remember the right answer for it! I'll talk the test again before Ouray, but a few other things are on the front burners right now...

EDIT>>>I forgot to wish you well! good luck!

with a handi talki you have the option of using it as a mobile with power cord external mike and speaker and atten.. Some times this has been done by the factory just like todays hands free phone set up except you still have to use the mike. But then you can pull it out and use it like a handi I know that is the way the Denver PD used to be setup

Update: I found a mint Kenwood TS-830S on Ebay about a month ago and bought it. I am very happy with it so far. I need to do some mods to the the antenna and have some Andrews coax on the way from another ebay surplus store. I don't have a license yet. I am listening in on the 40 meter and 80 meter bands at night and some 20 meters in the day. If anybody is interested, there is a request before the FCC right now the change the license requirements for the Novice class to not require morse code. There are also some restrictions on which bands the Novice can transmit on. 73's

Not sure how much more the FCC is going to do for us. They can easily sell our bands for a tidy profit.

Thumbs up

Hey guys, I just caught this thread out of the corner of my eye. I'm glad to see so many Ham FSJ's !

One of the coolest ham related things I've recently come across is echolink EchoLink

I spoke with someone on Cape Bretton Island,NS. My signal went from my computer over echolink to the NS repeater - from there it was put out on 2M.

I think this will come in very handy when I am up there on vacation with a rig in my car - my parents ( both hams ) can link up from Long Island. THey are in Europe right now - I spoke with them this morning - It was wild - EchoLink allows conference calls mixing RF and INternet signals. My dad had 5 of his ham buddies in a QSO over three continents.

73's

Mark

PS - Rande, did you get that OD J20 home yet ? I'm planning on mounting some Mil radios in mine....

Rande: I was listening on 80 meters last night to a conversation among several hams in your area of the country. They were concerned about the FCC taking HAM bands and using them for broadband video. They mentioned "BTL" and "BTL nodes" several times. I got the idea that this was some type of technology or maybe a company trying to promote the use of 400' towers to broadcast a service. I have not heard of that before in Texas so I wondered if this is something new to Minnesota. Is this your concern about the FCC selling bands? As far as I know, the only wireless broadband commercially available operates in the area of 5ghz+ and has a range of approx. 30 miles per tower.

Ferrets: Thanks for the reference to Echolink. I looked them up. Very interesting.

Tomorrow and Sunday I'm going to a class for my technician license. Sunday is a half day. I will than take my test the following Saturday. I have been taking a practice test on QRZ.com 2x a day to study. You know it's weird. I'm having a hard time finding terms for stuff. I can't even find a term for the word "Perigee" on arrl's website. Anyways, I'm trying real hard to pass this. I guess the club who puts this on has a cd they hand out that will help you pass the test that much quicker, and it's all free.

Wish me luck. I'm gonna be ready and I'm really excited. Wish me luck also that I get a really cool # for my license.

Ok, so things are looking up. It's really dead at work today and I'm all caught up on work so I've been taking the practice tests on QRZ.com. I have passed 1 out of 3 tests. That's pretty good considering a month ago I really knew nothing about this stuff.

P.s. this Topic of the month stuff is like a ghost town. I'm here all alone.
