Ge Jim 
That’s a interesting bit of history with a twist of ham radio!
How cool is that.
I hope you can make it up there to get some pictures some day.

It was Uncle Les who put me on a path to my Novice ticket back about 1960.
That call sign is now held by my son, Ian, who's a meteorologist.

Perhaps I'll get there yet, but I'd dearly love to have someone send me a photo of that aircraft, with a bunch of hams in the picture.

Jim have a good trip. Someday I will get to go.ay safe and I am about to finish building a QCX-Mini transceiver. Built one for 20 and it works great. Have a fun time.

QRP, NN1G transceiver

Curt,
  I had one once upon a time, got the kit from a “new ham” who discovered it was beyond his abilities. Worked swell when I got it assembled and alligned. Can you send the schematics to me if you have them in a digital format?
I think the photo below is of my NN1G two board.

QRP. Here tinkering with a nn1g 2 board transceiver. 1993 predecessor to 40-40 and sw series. Similar receiver except fixed gain mc1350 between the ne602 and it uses a real variable capacitor. Original builder had not aligned TX and rx, well nearly 0 Hertz difference. Now it's able to make qsos.

If you are going to Hamvention you should go early if you can to catch FDIM. The vendors night is open to all; you have to register for the talks and banquet. QRPARCI is also offering streaming memberships this year, so you can catch the talks at home if you are not making the trip.

Four Days In May is a seminar/conference/gathering held beginning the Thursday before Hamvention. The main event is Thursday when a series of talks are presented about various QRP and radio related topics. It is sponsored by QRPARCI.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I think we have probably beaten several types of Cycles to the point where it now Hertz.

How about we move along and let this one go away.

actually the energy is still there. never destroyed,just absorbed into something else.
remember we cant destroy energy,but can tap into it.Its reused just like the water. same water that fell when Jesus was alive is still with us Today.

william franklin,

if we did that, we would theoretically become infinite mass, we would go to ludicrus speed :)
Einstein and his e-mc2 and niles borg and his quark theories were great , but now we have SPACE BALLS. going at ludicrus speed and then going PLAID!!!!:)

Just think, if you could travel faster than the speed of light you could travel out into space ahead of your radio wave, slow down, and then copy your own transmission as it went past you.  Wow!!  All this geniusing makes my brain hurt.

Some claim that radio waves never go away, they just decrease in amplitude. Does that mean that there are cycles and hertz mixing? Oh dear, perish the thought!

The phrase "cycles per second" carries a lot of information.  The word "Hertz" carries nothing.

I'm all for the memorialization of the dead.  Three generations of my family have dedicated themselves to just that field of service.  Honoring our electronic pioneers is extremely worthwhile in educating all of us and (in my opinion) has always been done best when chronicled in history books, on geographical plaques, by special events, through temporary signage on Hamvention buildings, and other creative ways.

But not in scientific nomenclature.  Not in electronic vocabulary.  And not when indicating frequencies on the air.
