Time to start thinking about the 2014 SMRC Hamfest

As the weather starts to warm a little, its time to start working toward our annual hamfest/tailgate. It will be in the traditional location at Cedars of Lebanon State Park on the 23rd of August. Check the website for park general information and reservations. You can also get general vendor information along with the vendor grid for space rental options along with vendor applications.

Make your plans to be there! More information will be coming soon.

What is the range of Handheld Radio & How to increase it

Well what is the range of handheld radio(ht)? The average range of a HT is around 2 -3 miles in an urban area without repeater use but with repeater use is around 50 miles. But this depend on many factors like terrain, power, antenna & evaluation. 

Terrain without trees will do better than with trees same goes for many other things. Evaluation also goes with this because if you are on the 20 floor of a building it will get more range than on ground level. Power mostly effects the quality of signal in analog but in digital it sounds about the same with all amounts of power. Antennas is the the most important factor of the range of a HT. If you have a great radio and a poor antenna it won't do as good as a great antenna with a poor radio.
