  1. Hello brother been following your blog in rss for a short time now and am just getting into your HAM stuff. Been licensed now for 5 or so years and really enjoy the hobby. My main focus is disaster comms especially since I'm on the Eastern Seaboard and hurricanes are just a part of life.. You have some great content and I will be referring people here from now on. IDK if you have messed with JS8CALL at all but it is an interesting program and works well
