I’ve completed testing the Wordpress installation and expect to flip the switch this weekend. It seems to work properly though there will be additional theme tweaking to achieve a similar look and feel. I’ve decided not to move the 300+ existing blog posts, but the archive of these will remain in place. The RSS feed address will be changing and that’s bound to cause some disruption. If you subscribe to or syndicate my feed I’d appreciate you updating this detail once the change has taken place. More about this to follow.

New Book from ARRL

The Parks on the Air Book gives you a look at the setups and processes of 14 operators from a variety of skill levels and backgrounds and offers advice and motivation for taking your radio out to a park. Each chapter includes a detailed gear list so you can see exactly what your fellow operators are using, whether they’re leaders of the pack like Kerri Wright, KB3WAV, and Clint Sprott, W9AV, or folks just getting started with Parks on the Air. Setups cover satellite operating, QRP, urban backpack portable, activating tailgate-style, wire antennas for POTA, and more.
