Ya .... we're  in here  ... NQ2E.  If your going to learn code ... you =
have to learn to drink coffee.

Me too.  Not very active just now, and I don't have any antennas up but a
j-pole.  But come my wife's retirement and my son's graduation from college
I'm moving out in the boonies and then it will antenna city!

Yup.  WA9PUL here (I'm a 9 in 8 land).  What's yer QTH?
I'm not real active but I have been playing around with a little 
FT-817 QRP rig.

Hi Bob,
Yep, I agree.  And CW is my favorite mode.  Hey.....doesn't it stand for 
Coffee is Wonderful?
Hard to know...but I don't think I can do without my Isomac Tea/Mazzer 
Mini combo OR my 746pro/706MKIIG combo.........
73's to you too!

Paul,
Traverse City, MI here.  Kind of just getting started, getting more and 
more active....thought there would be some folks on the list that share 
the passion of radio and coffee....after all, how can you stay up during 
that great band opening working at QRP without some great homeroast????
73, Mark

I have plenty of transmitting gear, but no license, ... one of these 
day's ill do that and actually use the stuff how it was meant to be.
I do like the ceramic tube transmitter over the Texas Star 3200 though, 
it just sounds better, less finiky too.  I hear that you don't need to 
learn morse code to get a Ham License anymore,  any truth to that... for 
some reason that is one thing I never could really get my head into was 
the morse code.

8) From: Aaron
oh and another thing on the hammies....
ya need to figure out a way to use the heat coming off yer amps to roast 
the beans, now THAT would be a roaster...
SWR can mean  Standing Wave Roaster 
Aaron

9) From: Bill Morgan
Or Short Wave Roaster?
How high do ham frequencies go these days?  Microwave ovens are close
to 2.4GHz, aren't they?
Just a thought...

you are correct bill but the microwave would just boil the water out of 
them and stay probably in the low 200's... not nuff to roast them, we'd 
need to add radiant or ambient heat of some sort too im thinking.  Now 
if you got enough power and pump it through a waveguide, a few beans in 
there might work  heh...

11) From: europachris
I'm not sure if they totally eliminated the code, but it's only 5 words 
a minute now all the way up to at least General or Advanced class.  
Extra class might be 13 words.
I did my Advanced at 13 wpm and ALMOST had the 20 words for Extra.
The real guys can do 30, 40 wpm all day long.  Amazing.

Uh, what band opening?  I remember the good old days when sunspots 
were plentiful and these ain't them!  But here's hoping we have 
turned the corner.
We are going camping up in Canada in a couple days and I'll be 
bringing my FT-817 as well as about a pound of home roast along...... 
we camp with a couple other people and it is great to gather around a 
cup of coffee in the morning.

1.2+ gigahertz. It is said that one can cook a small steak with 1.2 gig and
a directional antenna. I've never done it. You're limited to about 5 watts
output at 1.2 gig. If you really want to roast with RF {radio frequency} you
could find/use the RF from a TV re-transmitting station. These things are
*very* hot. One fellow went up to clean up the remains of a bird that
accidentally flew into the antenna. He forgot to turn off the transmitter.
His hand was "blown off" at the wrist. Believe me, if you've just gotta
roast with electromagnetics/RF...use the microwave. - Steve D.
