My Ham Radio Home Page

(You may have been directed here from You’ve landed on my ham radio home page. I’m KEØOG, an Extra-Class ham radio operator. I’m active on HF, 2-meters, and 440 MHz. I use this page as an index to ham-radio-related material on this site.

Current Geomagnetic Conditions for HF Bands

This chart shows various geomagnetic indicies and what the sun looks like now. These indicies show what HF propagation is like right now. You can use data like this to help you find a good HF band for operations. You can refresh this page to get the latest data.

    Hi Dave!
    I got licensed on november 2016 and got ready to transmit a few months ago.
    Tou have been so inspiring and your videos were so helpful! Your English is very easy to understand, even for an italian audience, and I just wanted to tell you that.
    I just want to say thank you for spending your time helping other ham radio operators.
    You make me want to go deeper and deeper in this wonderful ham-world !

    Hi Dave,
    My name is Ruel DW1VGX from Pasig City. I have been watching your videos all the time. I am currently a Tech and working for my General ticket. I find it very helpful to watch your videos first prior to reading the manual/handbook. Then watch it again after reading. The principles are all the same except for our rules and regulations. 73!

    Roger, there’s an item in the menu to select audio input, either mic or data. Make sure it’s set to data, which allows the rear connector audio to drive the radio. Hope that helps.

    I think I read somewhere that you are using your Ten-Tec Jupiter on digital using Fldigi. I am unable to control the transmit audio with my MFJ USB radio interface. Is there a secret? The control on the front seems to make NO difference. I have considered buying another sound card interface like SignaLink. I have tried changing the levels of mike, etc. Maybe I haven’t found the right combination or my interface is defective. CW works ok.
    Thanks for any insight you may have.
    I enjoy your YouTube videos daily.
