We publish a frequency chart in every issue of On the Air, but sometimes you need more than one, or perhaps you'd rather not cut up the magazine just to have a chart you can put on your wall or elsewhere. We understand! ARRL makes frequency charts available for free downloading in a variety of formats: color, black and white, horizontal, vertical, and more. Go to www.arrl.org/graphical-frequency-allocations and download the one that's right for you. ... See MoreSee Less
HAM-CON IS THIS SATURDAY FEBRUARY 22nd at the Hampton Inn, off of I-89, Exit 16 in Colchester. Show opens at 8AM. Early admission starts at 6AM.
This will be another great show! Special guests are Chip Margelli K7JA (who beat the phone text people on Leno) and ARRL staffer Dan Henderson N1ND. We'll also have the ARRL First Vice President and our New England Division Director in attendance. A total of 8 great forums will run between 8:30 and 1:00. We'll have the vendor room full of goodies, the W1V live station, Tech table and 300 fellow hams and geeks to provide lots o' eyeball QSO's with.
Two things: 1. Come to the show! Even if you don't need to buy anything, or see anything or do anything, come out and support ham radio in Vermont. If you are out of area, come up to Burlington, bring family, drop them at the Mall, enjoy the town and go out to eat later in the day. Make a fun day of it.
2. Bring a non-ham with you to the Convention! We need to grow ham radio! What better way than to bring someone to a fun convention where they can learn about what we do and see actual ham QSO's being made at W1V. Bring a non-ham to the show and I'll give them a discount in the ham class.
