While teams will try to salvage some parts of the observatory, the decommission will bring an end to the popular 57-year-old telescope, which has been featured in numerous films and television shows. Damage caused by the failure of the first auxiliary cable in August 
Image: UCF The decision comes after two major cables failed at the facility within the last few months, causing significant damage to the observatory. The National Science Foundation (NSF), which oversees Arecibo, assessed the impact of the cable breaks and found that the facility’s other cables could also fail soon. If some of the remaining cables break, engineers fear that the 900-ton suspended platform above the facility could come crashing down on Arecibo’s iconic 1,000-foot-wide dish. It’s also possible that three surrounding towers, which stand at more than 300 feet tall, could topple over in any direction, potentially hitting the visitor’s center or other important nearby buildings….READ FULL ARTICLE Review Installation and Review of the Ameritron RCS-8V Remote Coax Switch August 01, 2017 No comments Ameritron’s Remote Coax Switch lets you remotely switch up to five separate antennas using one inexpensive small control line (like standard telephone… Read more Comparing the MD2017 & RT82 DMR HTs, DMRTrack Firmware Info October 31, 2017 No comments “I’ve been wanting to do a comparison video for a while between the TYT MD2017 and the Retevis RT-82 dual band DMR HTs, which are essentia… Read more Eight Tips For successful Low Power Radio Contacts – QRP April 20, 2020 No comments Read more Jim Heath W6LG Discusses Antenna Gain, Yagis and Rotators November 26, 2018 No comments Jim Heath W6LG talks about antenna gain using a light bulb.

She was approached to introduce the resolution by 12-year-old Raymond, N7KCB, from Peoria, Arizona. “I started Long Distance Responders so I can help prepare the community for emergencies with amateur radio,” said Raymond. “There might be a price for a radio, but the ability and knowledge to help someone is truly priceless.” As Lesko’s resolution notes, World Amateur Radio Day (WARD) is celebrated annually on April 18 to commemorate the founding of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) in 1925, and she said her resolution recognizes the amateur radio community with a national day in the United States in 2021. The resolution cites the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES®) for providing “invaluable emergency communications services following recent natural disasters, including but not limited to helping coordinate disaster relief efforts following Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma, and Maria and other extreme weather disasters.” SOURCE :ARRL Antenna 80 Meter Shortened Inverted-L Bazooka Antenna October 05, 2015 No comments Bazooka Antenna A DOUBLE BAZOOKA antenna is an extremely broad-banded Half Wave Antenna that can operate efficiently across an entire Ham band with li… Read more 2-Element parasitic Yagis by DK7ZB – 10 15 20 30 meters June 02, 2015 No comments   2-Element parasitic Yagis by DK7ZB for the Shortwave-Bands 10m-30m No other antenna has a better relation between gain and expense than the 2-E… Read more 6M HO LOOP M2 ( 50MHz ) February 16, 2016 No comments Our 6M HO Loop is the result of a continued development of reduced size, omni–directional horizontallypolarized loop-style antennas.
