The new N licence in ham radio: easy entry, exciting possibilities!
Germany is preparing for the introduction of the N licence!

For many years, there have been discussions about whether Germany should follow the example of other countries and create a new so-called "beginner's licence". This licence class should make it easier to obtain an amateur radio licence, even with less in-depth technical knowledge. The aim is to enable access to less technically orientated people and thus make amateur radio as a hobby more attractive overall.

My journey with amateur radio and APRS: Why I will opt for the new TH-D75E
My journey with amateur radio and APRS: Why I will opt for the new TH-D75E

Ok, ok, the "O" in OM actually applies to me now. I'm a pensioner, have been involved in amateur radio for more than 50 years and have seen a few things come and go. One of the best things for me was and is APRS, the Automated Position Reporting System. As a consultant for image and text transmission (yes, that was the real name back then) in the DARC e.V., I was more or less directly involved in setting up the packet radio network of the time.

Meteor Scatter: Reinforcement from outer space
Meteor Scatter: Reinforcement from outer space

It is worthwhile not only for radio amateurs, but also times with the whole family to observe such shooting star showers optically. To do this, you should look for a place in the region that is as dark as possible. Unfortunately, the light pollution in densely populated areas is enormous, so it is difficult to find a place that is sufficiently dark. Helpful are maps on the Internet, which show the degree of light pollution, e.g. https://www.lightpollutionmap.info oder https://darksitefinder.com/. Or ask the local astronomy group, where they go for observation... No matter if you look at the shooting stars, listen to them or use them actively as reflectors - we wish you a lot of fun and "Clear Skies".

JNCRadio's CS-818 tuner in the field test with Marco, DD6FM: Portable radio made easy!

Hello, my name is Marco, DD6FM and today I am testing the CS-818 tuner from JNCRadio.

It's mid-September and the weather is still nice and warm today to do some portable radio.
