Stanford is breaking old weaksignal record.
Another new UHF DX record by the Stanford Radio Group.
Amateur Radio will and must transer itself from some of its present branches into fields that are unique and challenging in the future. For those of us who are only interested in communication, many possibilities are now on line such as cellular and satellite telephone, different forms of internet communication, email etc.
The competitive activities of amateur radio such as contesting are doomed and will eventually lose their appeal. Many of us find ourselves in situations where we have to live in rental housing or own a house in a strictly regulated development or community, have to observe maximum radiation limits, and have to contend with high noise levels from signals that are generated by consumer electronic devices.
For Radio to remain interesting to many of us, we will have to return
to the BASICS
such as propagation, low power (QRP), weaksignal, small
and compact antennas and the like. It might be necessary to flee from
the shack and do Radio out in a quiet spot - away from people - if we
are fortunate enough to be able to locate such areas.
Large racks with with mercury vapour rectifiers in the bottom, the light intensity of the bulbs in the house being modulated by the rhythm of the transmitted code, and high towers loaded with aluminum are becoming more rare and hard to efford in today's developed world, especially for younger people with limited resources.
Some of the areas with increased activity and interest are all kinds of low power (QRP) applications, for operating as well as construction, advanced receiver design and the utilization of computing power for the enhancements of the communication process. In addition to this, computers enable better research and design for antennas. In this connection it is worth noting the increased interest of amateurs in radio astronomy, meteor scatter, satellite communication, VLF (Very Low Frequecy) and the observation of natural radio phenomena.
The purpose of this page is to draw attention to the developments that have been in progress for at least a last decade or more. This is certainly not intended to force anything on anyone.
Although many in the amateur radio community are resisting this development,
the scientific and military defense communities have seen this
