New groups are gamifying ham radio, and taking participants to new heights in the process

I bought two of these pulleys for my G5RV antenna. Nylon cord comes from the antenna’s insulators and is tied to a brick on each side. This allows the antenna to move with the wind or a tree limb.
I bought an Icom IC-735 HF transceiver at Frostfest today. $200. Everything works.
It transmits on amateur 10 meter through 160 meter bands. It receives 0.1 MHz through 30 MHz.
I’ve hacked together a power cable for it. It won’t be transmitting for awhile (I need proper antennas and power supply), so what you’re about to see won’t be a problem.
