HRN 206: Navassa Fever (1972 DXpedition) from HamRadioNow

Published on Jun 5, 2015 Since the first one in 1954, there have been 16 DXpeditions to Navassa Island that counted for DXCC, and three that didn’t.* Way back in 1928, a ham was stationed there as lighthouse keeper and operated for a time.

HRN 204: Dayton DX Forum Part 2 – Don Miller W9WNV

If you were a DXer in the 1960’s, you knew all about Don. Or you thought you did. I became a ham in 1965, but my attention was elsewhere, so learning about this now, decades later, has been fascinating. Don wasn’t the first DXpeditioner, but he expanded and refined the game. He helped demonstrate the need for clear rules and definitions, sometimes by breaking them. He spent time in prison (serious, disputed, but not ham...

HRN 200: BS#3 (Media Edition) on HamRadioNow

Yay, 200. Another millstone episode. I mean MILEstone episode. “BS” mean Bull Session, and it usually means at least two people. Newsline’s Bill Pasternack WA6ITF was going to join me, but he’s had a setback since returning from the hospital and wasn’t up to it. So Bill will be back on HamRadioNow as soon as he’s doing better. But the show must go on, right? So this is a solo effort, which means...
