W0EQO is back!

Tall tower supporting dipole antenna, with ladder line dangling down toward camera

Check out the two HF remote base internet stations available to club members. Find out more at https://handiham.org/remotebase. See the user guide on this website, too.

The photo shows the dipole antenna fed with 450 ohm ladder line.  It is high on the tower at the apex of the inverted vee.  The legs are 150 feet long, for a total dipole length of 300 feet.

Handiham Club Daily Net

What are you waiting for? Check into our Handiham nets… Everyone is Welcome!

How to find the Handiham Net: 

  • The Handiham EchoLink conference is 494492. Connect via your iPhone, Android phone, PC, or on a connected simplex node or repeater system in your area.
  • You will also find us on the IRLP linked repeater system. Look for IRLP 9008.

The Handiham Net will be on the air daily. If there is no net control station on any scheduled net day, we will have a round-table on the air get-together.

Our daily Echolink net continues to operate for anyone and everyone who wishes to participate at 11:00 hours CST (Noon Eastern and 09:00 Pacific), as well as Wednesday evenings at 19:00 hours CST (7 PM).  If you calculate GMT, the time difference is that GMT is six hours ahead of Minnesota time during the winter.  Note that we do not have a Thursday evening session at this time, that session has been moved to Sunday evenings at 8:00 PM Central Time.

Doug, N6NFF, poses a trivia question in the first half of the Wednesday evening session, so check in early if you want to take a guess.   The answer to the trivia question is generally given shortly after the half-hour mark.  A big THANK YOU to all of our net control stations and to our Handiham Club Net Manager, Michael, VE7KI.
