Propagation/Planning Tools

Posted by Jeff – WE0A

Here’s some tools/websites I’ve found useful in planning then making those last few QSOs on an award.  If you’ve got suggestions to add, please, let me know.  Add them to the list.

My deepest appreciation and thanks…

Today I received a box in the mail that I was not expecting. After I soaked it in water in case it was a bomb, I opened it and found a pleasant surprise from the net: The Phoenix Award.

Al Gritzmacher AE2T #1800 with Phoenix AwardThank you all that had a hand in this. It means a lot to me. I have worked towards many of the net awards and endorsements, but never seemed to get around to ever applying for them. I always enjoyed the actual on-air part more and I kept procrastinating. This one was a complete surprise.

I don’t remember when it was I started the web page for the net, but it began very simply as a project while I was learning HTML. I hoped my tinkering with it could turn into something useful to the net. Several hosts later and a couple of domain name changes (Remember www.freeport.net/~geratol?) it’s become a central point of communication for the net.

Since handing the reins over to Kevin N1KL, we’ve got the site running smoothly and added some features to make it even better. I know it will continue to serve the net well under his guidance, and I will assist when needed.

Thank you again. I will place this in a prominent place in my shack!

(Just kidding about soaking it in water!)
