Getting Back to Ham Radio

After a rather long hiatus, I’ve decided to get back into ham radio. For the past couple of years I’ve been absent from the hobby, but Hurricane Irene and the value of my HT in getting information both from amateur and commercial sources reminded me how much I enjoy it. So I’ve renewed my ARRL membership, reconnected with my local club, and tonight I’m headed to a club meeting. It’s good to be back.

Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Irene is coming. It’s gotten lots of coverage, and by the time it reaches my area it’s expected to be a Category 2, transitioning to a Category 1. While Annapolis isn’t on the direct path for the storm, we’re close enough that they’re projecting up to a foot of rain and a storm surge up to 4 feet high, which has the potential to do a lot of damage.
