ARRL Field Day this weekends June 24 - 25, 2017.

Yep, that time of year again for this event,  http://www.arrl.org/field-day  .  And, no doubt that propagation will come in time to suck for this. It certainly did last year. Dead from 7MHz on up and no Sporadic E for 10M and 6M. Still, for DX'ers it's a chance to hear where all those stations from the USA and Canada are coming from since they exchange the call and the state, or province, they are at. And some places the states are divided. NYS is on of those for WNY, ENY, Long Island NY, etc. So, be listening on the regular HF FREQ's for these, 160M, 80M / 75M, 40M, 20M, 15M, 10M, and 6M. (No WARC bands, 60M, or the new MW and LW, bands.) Scanner listeners can listen for FM contesters on 29.600MHz, 52.525MHz and 52.540MHz, 146.550MHz and 146. 580MHz, 223.500MHz, 446.00MHz, 906.500MHz, and 1294.500MHz. Most activity is the lower HF bands, but if Sporadic E comes into play, then 10M and especially 6M will the the stars of the show. Happy DX'ing!!!!!

Recently, a co-worker quizzed me on, "What would happen if you were to apply reverse polarity to the Energizer Bunny?". Having no idea, I asked, "What would happen?". The answer is he'd keep coming and coming and coming...
