Field Day in the Time of Covid-19

This year, Field Day is going to be quite different for the members of the SVRC.  Since the Covid virus has restricted our movements and social distancing is the new normal, the SVRC is not going to assemble a team to conduct Field Day as it has in the past.  Instead, we are recommending that our members run their own Field Day exercise on their own.  As long as you follow the health guidelines, we hope you can work from home or from some personal outdoor area and make as many contacts as you can.

Binary Theory 101: A Really Basic Explanation

Binary Theory 101: A Really Basic Explanation

Modern Amateur radio incorporates digital computing systems like never before. The word “Binary” is tossed about freely with sometimes little understanding of what a binary numbering system is or how binary mathematics actually works.  This elementary video helps explain how a group of solid state elements can apply basic binary math to perform a function.  We hope this five-minute video helps remove some of the mystery from digital electronics.
