Make plan now to join us at the club house as the Steel City ARC take on Field Day 2019. This will be the first year that we will be using Mosley antenna to blast our way onto the 40 meter band. Please let Chris Grimm, N3PQ know your coming and what you would like to try to operate. We will be operating all the bands from 160 meters up though 70 cm bands. We are especially looking for people to cover the over night shifts. The club will be providing food and drinks during the contest.
The customers and experts have spoken! The ICOM-7610 HF/50MHz All Mode Transceiver, featuring advanced dynamic range performance, true dual receivers and a host of other
next-level benefits, has been well worth the wait.
From the Experts’ Perspective
In his User Evaluation and Test Report, Icom maven Adam Farson, AB4OJ/VA7OJ, analyzed the unit’s physical feel, architecture, touch-screen, receiver front-end management, filters, noise reduction, noise blanker, AGC system, menus, metering, CW, RTTY decoder and memory keyer, VFO/memory management, on-air experience and more.
He concluded: “Although the IC-7610 is in a higher price category than the IC-7300, I nonetheless feel that the 7610 provides excellent value and capability for its price.” Read the entire report here.
In an interview on Ham Talk, Rob Sherwood of Sherwood Engineering, NC0B, offered ample praise for both the IC-7300 and IC-7610. The Ham Radio guru and highly respected gear-tester lauded many features of the IC-7610, including its dual receivers for working split and the unit’s solid TR switching and audio peak filter—major upgrades for serious CW operators. Listen to the entire interview here. To see the numbers crunched, check out Sherwood’s technical breakdown of the IC-7610.

Mobile Event App will Help Dayton Hamvention Visitors to Navigate the Show
Dayton Hamvention® 2019, host of the ARRL National Convention, will mark the debut of a free mobile event app to help attendees navigate the extensive Hamvention program, activities, and exhibits using their smartphones or tablets. A collaborative effort between ARRL and Dayton Hamvention, the app was developed by TripBuilder Media™. ARRL Convention and Event Coordinator Eric Casey, KC2ERC, has been readying the app, with content contributions from Dayton Hamvention Committee members, and he just introduced it in a new ARRL YouTube video.
“Our goal is to have all of the printed program content mirrored in the app, organized so that you can schedule the forums you’re planning to attend, and find the exhibitors you want to visit,” Casey said. In addition to including exhibits and forums, the app will highlight schedules and details for affiliated events, such as dinners and other special gatherings, and a feature to allow attendees to follow the hourly prize drawings from wherever they are.
“Use the app so you don’t miss a winning ticket!” Casey suggested. The Dayton Hamvention Prize Committee will populate the app as winners are drawn.
