Hex Beam - Phase 2 Completed

Memorial day provided a perfect time to complete phase 2 of the SVRC Hex Beam Project.  A large volunteer crew assembled on Monday morning, May 27, to help with the ongoing plan to erect a Rohn tower on the roof of the Red Cross building – home of the SVRC club station.  Thirty donated concrete blocks were taken from the parking lot to the roof where they were installed on the tower base that had been constructed a week earlier.  Then the single section of Rohn tower and rotor were installed on the base.  Only one step remains; installing the Hex Beam on the tower.

Modes, Modes, and More Modes

MODES, MODES, AND MORE MODES

Modes. There's a word you run across all the time in amateur radio.  What exactly do we mean by mode?  Well, the answer is: it depends on the context in which it's used.  There's modulation modes, operating modes, digital communication modes, and all kinds of other flavors of mode.  K9ZXO takes a stab at explaining some of the possible uses of the word in this five minute "mini-lesson".
