I had an interesting QSO in the sacristy of Ss. Trinita the other day. One of the priests of the FSSP is a ham.
That said, I haven’t done anything with Echolink yet. Sorry. I will have to be nagged into it, I think.
However, since I told myself I would post some ham things occasionally, here is something pretty cool. I have posted before about ham radio videos by USNERDOC available on Youtube. A while back he had some how-to videos about Anderson power poll set ups. I’d like to make some of the connectors, etc., for when I get a bit more ambitious (and actually have more gear). Anyway, he recently had videos showing how he made a convenient 100 foot wire antenna, that could be easily set up and taken down. Then, on a road tripe, he tuned into the AmRRON 20 meter HF Voice Net using a Tecsun PL-880 the above mentioned 100 foot antenna off of his hotel room in the pool area while in Scottsdale, AZ. I think that AmRRON broadcasts from Montana (not sure about that).
Anyway, here’s the video. Check out his other videos. He has made some great accessories/equipment.
