I was going though my shack today doing some cleaning and came across my copy of the National Interoperability Field Guide (NIFOG) and realized my copy was an older version (2011).  I went online to Homeland Security and found the newest one.  It is a PDF so you can at least download it.  You can also order a hard copy if you want.  Just research Google for that. 

I have attached the PDF. FYI  It is 126 pages.



Thanks,

Re: April Ham Test Cancelled

Hi everyone:

I think it will be a good experiment to try on on the air meeting. There most likely be a bit of a learning curve, but I think SNOVARC is up to the challenge. Perhaps the on the air Elemer session could be more operational than theoretical. We could try a 10M tune up, or try a contact drill on 75M. Maybe we could even try some peer to peer Winlink. Just a few ideas.

Chew on these ideas and see what you think.

73,

TOm, WA7TBP

Sure sorry you had to do this, but we just don't know what this darn virus is going to do. I hope everyone understands that it is better to be cautious.

We will try again later when this virus is behind us.

7 p.m. tonight Roundtable social on 441.825 hosted by RCR

All,
Here is an immediate way to connect with each other and hams from another club or clubs. I know tonight I am ready for some social connection. Here is a great opportunity!

I would say have the club meeting on the radio but the same format as monthly meeting. This could also be good practice for radio decorum.

Slim Jim Roll Up J Pole

Paul Zoba
 

I have another week and a half in my cast, so I’m not going upstairs to my shack much. I picked up one of these dual band roll up J Poles and while it works well on 2 meter, I’m not getting out on 70 cm. I have it hanging next to my couch and connected to a Yaesu VX6R HT at 5w.

Here’s what my antenna analyzer has to say. The zero impedance is the problem, right? Should be 50 ohms....?

Thanks for any thought...
