Things Are Changing September 19th, 2013
Things are moving fast in ham radio at the moment with Elecraft introducing their new linear amplifier for the KX3 and still promising a 2m transverter next year for the same transceiver. FlexRadio are promising their new 6000 series of equipment will move forward from its rather lengthy testing phase into a serious production phase. No firm date on this yet. Apache Labs have now shipped their first batch of radios to Europe and we will have a few early next week. And Icom are promising to ramp up their supplies of the IC-7100 with 4m coverage.
With all this rapid progress, I have been very mindful that we need to update our web site which is showing its age. Gone are the days when you created something and you could measure its life in a good many years. Ah the days of the FT-101! So I am glad to be able to announce that our web site is about to be replaced by a new one. It is something we have been working on over the past six months. Hopefully it will be lunched within the next couple of weeks. I am sure there will be a few glitches, because that is the nature of software. I have seen the test site and it looks good. So keep checking our web address over the next couple of weeks.
We are also about to launch another web site that will be devoted to ApacheLabs radio equipment. The address will be www.apache-labs.co.ku. At present there is a holding page, but it should go live very shortly.
And while all this is going on, we are preparing the for the Newark Show which takes place next week end. It is a busy time indeed. Oh, and just to complicate matters, I spent the afternoon in Moorfields `Eye `Hospital to be assessed for a procedure in November, The result of which was to have my corneas dilated so that I canon see to type properly this evening!
