On Wednesday night June 28, 2017 Bob is planning a
visit to the club to say hi to the members.
This video is from last year on our trip to Altoona with Walt KA3YNO and his Grandkids, WA3VXJ, and Denny from the Beaver Valley Club. This video is heading back to Pittsburgh around Latrobe at track speed of 70 MPH.
In honor of Bobby’s visit to his hometown I have recovered his 6 meters recordings from the old site.
SCARC member N3LL, Bob Carnahan, put together a small collection of recordings made of 6-meter skip activities in which DX stations running as little as 30-watts can be heard. Most of the recordings are contacts between the club’s station, W3KWH, and others; however, Bob includes one DX contact made from his home running only 100-watts and using a par omni loop antenna design.
All links provide MP3 streams (compatible w/dial-up)

Not too late to join the fun of field day. The club house is open.
On Wednesday June 28, 2017 at 7:30 pm at the club I will have a refresher course on using the remotes and also how to use RemoteHams software.
This Weekend June 24-25 The Steel City ARC club will be holding field day at the clubhouse. All are welcome to attend and to see what Ham Radio is all about. All members are encouraged to attend and operate this weekend. Food and drinks will be provided for the attendees.
After many years of service the Echolink machine permanently died last week. Please standby as we build a new computer.
