Good morning CW Ops’, Happy Thanksgiving. Please help me spread the word about this petition filed with the FCC by the ARRL. We only have 30 days, thus this needs to be spread quickly please.
The ARRL has filed another petition with the FCC to broaden bandwidth for Digital mode signals on the HF bands. They are wanting to drop the Symbol Bit requirement, which most hams agree is out dated, however they also want to allow for broaden bandwidth signals up to 2.8 khz as equals to SSB stations within the CW/DIGITAL portions of the HF Spectrum. This is not acceptable, this would mean we would not only be putting up with broad signals as such already by RTTY & Pactor 3 that run 1 kHz wide, but now we will be forced to put up with even 2.8 kHZ broader signals such as Pactor 4 which is an equal to a SSB station in the CW/DIGI portion of the HF bands.
This is not acceptable, please spread the word. We have 30 days to make our feelings know with the FCC by filing our comments for REJECTION/DECLINE for the petition for RM-11708 filed with the FCC.
You can download instructions to share with our members for step by step instructions on how to file your comment of REJECTION by downloading this PDF from my website.

Please spread the information the best way you can as if you can imagine all the NO CODE OPS being able to run broader high speed digital modes anywhere on the HF CW portion of the bands we will be over run.

I love CW. I operate alot of CW mobile, and would love having you aboard some day.
I've been licensed since 1970, at the age of 10, and been going ever since. I have a couple people I would like to thank for my amateur radio pleasures, W8MYZ - Mike, no longer with us, but most definetly in my heart. WB8TTH - Wally (my father) whom I admired the most, little education, hard worker, and always on my tail to do my best.
The one thing I love most, is giving back to Amateur Radio what I have learned from my Elmers, Mike and my Father were the BEST, no I don't mean the best at CW, the best at Phone, RTTY, nothing like that, I mean simply put they were the best TEACHERS one could ask for, they had confidence in me when I needed it, and they always encoraged me to do the BEST I could, they both are truely missed, and in my heart each time I key my rig.
I enjoy Elmering others into Amateur Radio, and enjoy teaching. If you've worked me, thank you, if not, please look for me on the bottom end of any band, I don't run Phone much at all, but find your key, and jump in my qso, I will run ANY SPEED, and I love to Ragchew.

40Meter 4-Square Verticals
4 each 33 ft 6 inch approximately verticals, DX Engineering 4-square controller, each element has 1/2 inch 75 ohm hardline running to them and then from the dx engineering center controller to the shack is approx. 150 foot of 3/4 inch 75 ohm hardline with 1/12 wavelength terminators on each end for 50 ohm matching.
Here you can see the termination method I used for each vertical element. Using 3/4" plumbling compression fitting and cutting them I was able to develope a very nice compression fitting for the PL259 connection to the elements. You can see the alluminum homebrew plates for the connection of the ground radials with sheet metal screws.
My two paddles I use most of the time here. Begali Keys
