The Eagle Has Landed

eagleAstronomy isn’t my only hobby. I’m a ham radio operator too. I enjoy building my own equipment, but I also use store-bought radios. I’ve wanted to get my hands on a TenTec Eagle ever since I played with one in the demo room at the factory in Sevierville, Tennessee. The UPS man delivered mine this afternoon.

Expect a review soon.

    • It’s easy to get started. Click on the link to the ARRL (that’s the American Radio Relay League), and you’ll find information about getting a license. All that’s required for an entry level license is passing a 35-question test. Knowledge of Morse code is no longer required for any class of license.


    • I’m living on a fairly small lot. I have a multi-band HF vertical fed with coax and an 80 m inverted-vee fed with ladder line and a tuner.

      I have a 3-element yagi for 6 m. The beam is in the attic.


      • Then you should get some good range with 6m and 80m. One of the locals has a huge wire v mounted on three masts.
