SCS: New Pactor 4 Modem

SCS has posted a new modem for Pactor 4.  The P4dragon DR-7800 is the latest and in the line of pactor modems. This one the say has been redesigned with a fast quad-core DSP allowing high data rates. I am still a fan of software based digital modes like Winmore. It is nice to see advances in communications. Check it out and let me know what you think.

"DIY Community" asked for Input by Radio Shack

The "DIY Community" asked for Input  by Radio Shack. This is very interesting but is not unexpected. Maybe they will move back to their roots and have more parts, and other items they had back in the day. It would be nice to have "Radio Shack" brand equipment and maybe even some Ham radio equipment. Be nice but let your voices be heard!

FEMA Thanks The Amatuer Radio Community

Craig Fugate, FEMA Administrator, at the Earthquake Communications Preparedness Forum, held on Tuesday, May 3, 2011 in Washington, DC, thanked the Amateur radio community. He said that ham radio really is valuable "when all else fails".  His part of the forum begins at about 18:30. The whole video was interesting if you have the time to watch, at least watch the part about ham radio. I think this gives some insight about Amateur radio and public service.
