Today we would like to recognize and congratulate all the girl scouts who have earned their Radio and Wireless Technology Patch.

The patch supports the goals of the Girl Scout Leadership Development Program which are to, Discover, Connect, and Take Action.

To learn more about the program, click here: http://www.arrl.org/girl-scouts-radio-patch

Girl Scouts can learn fundamentals of radio communication and wireless technology and take action in their communities to apply communications to connect people, provide safety, and explore related careers.

  • Learn the fundamentals of wireless communication
  • Explore radio science through hands-on learning with Amateur Radio
  • Use radio communication to talk around the world and for public service and safety
  • Learn how wireless technology is used in everyday life and in careers

As part of this program, Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to learn about Amateur Radio (also known as “ham” radio) and do hands-on activities with Amateur Radio. They can also learn about broadcast radio, emergency and public service communications, and explore ways wireless technologies are used in everyday life and in the workplace.

They will be encouraged to take on activities that engage, educate, and empower them and kindle an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) subjects and careers.

The program supports the Girl Scout Leadership Development Program by enabling the following goals for girls:

  • Discover— Explore the natural world to learn about radio communications and wireless technologies.
  • Connect — Use knowledge of wireless technology to understand its capabilities and its limitations. Be an informed citizen who understands how wireless technologies are regulated and used.
  • Take Action— Make a difference in their communities by making friends through radio contacts, providing public service and emergency communications, and raising awareness of career opportunities.

t last! A large screen panadapter for your IC-7300!

Radio Analog PTRX-7300 IF Interface Modules provide an innovative method to sample filtered receive and transmit IF signals from the IC-7300 for your SDR receiver spectrum scope display. And this well-designed module does it all without soldering, without signal loss and with no disruption to the transceiver’s proper function.

This impedance matched and buffered PTRX-7300 IF Interface Module easily installs inside of your IC-7300 transceiver. A high-quality circuit board and aluminum header replaces the 4-pin Tuner port and adds an IF connector for your SDR receiver. This modification is not permanent and it can be reversed if desired.

DX Engineering offers the DX Patrol MKIV SDR Receiver to use as the Radio Analog PTRX-7300 panadapter companion for your PC, laptop, MAC or mobile device. Operating system support for your SDR receiver depends on the freeware that you choose to download, which is not supplied with either of these devices.

Why would you want to install a panadapter device for a radio that has one? Simply because the small screen IC-7300 doesn’t have an external display output. With the PTRX-7300, your SDR receiver can put the IC-7300 transceiver’s own signals onto a much larger screen. You can even sync the tuning of SDR to the IC-7300 with third-party software and rig control.

Join the modern age of large spectrum displays with your SDR and IC-7300. Expand the capabilities of your IC-7300 with an exciting Radio Analog PTRX-7300 IF Interface Module, available exclusively in North America from DX Engineering!
