Welcome to “With Varying Frequency – Amateur Radio Ponderings

Welcome to With Varying Frequency – Amateur Radio Ponderings.

With so much to learn about Amateur Radio, the use of Internet Based Communications to coordinate & share Amateur Radio, and Netiquite there seemed only one way to go – to simply jump right in!

I’ve been greatly taken by the Feeds & Blogs of great amateur radio works like 100 Pound DXpedition by Scott NE1RD and Long Delayed Echoes by Jeff KE9V. I highly recommend you check out their projects.

I’m hoping to be able to touch a few topics I’ve stumbled across & share some the lessons about amateur radio I’ve had the good fortune of learning!

It is NOT my intention to post daily, or even on a set schedule, or to compete with established references, feeds and blogs.

It is my goal to share links to these fine works and maybe help another radio amateur in their efforts!

    Hi Dave WW0W,

    There are several living on the Island and quite a number of “seasonal residents” who are licensed amateurs.

    W9EVT has the most extensive setup on the Island, and runs a “Ham Hotel” at Greengate Farm.

    W9EVI has a small private setup focused on 160m at his summer home.

    Across from Sievers is a fellow John, who’s call sign I didn’t catch, with a vacation antenna farm.

    At Jackson Harbor press there are two hams.

    Now at the Washington Hotel is working one young ham, KC9JGD (one of my Sons).

    Dean K3GGN has a setup on Island at his Island Retreat.

    I am sure I have missed a fair number – the FCC says there should be something live 11 resident hams and of course they don’t track those with second homes operating from the Island.

    Not to forget there is the WI9DX Washington Island DX Club.

    If you search this blog (the feature to do so is on the right) for posts concerning WI-001L you will find links and a number of posts.

    What is W9EVT’s “Ham Hotel” about?

    Hi Dave

    Look for a post on the “Ham Hotel” on Washington Island WI-001L in the next week.
