Ham Member Lookups: 550

 

     My name is Reuben, and I am in 8th grade. I got my licence in December of 2015. I upgraded to general in March of 2016. I then upgraded to my Extra in the begining of 2017. So far I really like the radio. I mostly do 2 meters, but I have just started to get into HF and 70 centimeters. I only have 2 Yaesu radios, a ft-60r, and an ft-2900r. My HF rigs are an Icom 7300, and an Elecraft KX3. There are 4 members of my family that are Ham operators. (my dad KF6MIQ, me, my brother Patrick KI7DNL, and my sister Kiara KI7RES)  I am a member of the 76ers, UVARC, and the ARRL. To do my 2 meter/70 centimeter contacts I use an open stub J-pole, or a signal stick. I sometimes use my tape measure yagi that I built for 2 meter contacts. For my HF contacts I use an inverted v dipole about 15 ft up.smiley

     For the 6th grade science fair, I made it to the finals. My science progect was on blocking radio waves. Since my ft-60 was too powerfull even on 1 watt for what I was using it for, I used a garage door opener. (because it uses radio waves as well) I got some materials, cardboard, glass, wood, cloth, and aluminum foil. Then I tested how far the garage door opener would work just by its self. Then I got one of the materials, and covered the garage door opener with it. I tested to see how far it would work, then repeated this prosses untill I had used all of my matirials. I concluded that the denser the matirial is the better it blockes radio waves. So the aluminum foil worked best to block the radio waves.
