Sorry for the delay in posting the Simplex results from Saturday night. 
See/hear the net here. Make sure to hit the "like" button to help Simplex Radio!!

Another productive net with the following results:
35 check-ins on 146.415 FM
13 check-ins on 144.240 USB
10 check-ins on 50.135 USB
(background color above reminds me of those  candy Circus Peanuts)

On another note, do you think there's room for something bigger than an HT for this new 3-wheeled car to be made here in the U.S.? Wouldn't want to be hit by a bus in that vehicle.

FRN required to take Tech Exam: ARRL Notice

 

SB QST @ ARL $ARLB015
ARLB015 First-Time Exam Applicants Must Obtain FCC Registration Number before Taking Exam
 
ZCZC AG15
QST de W1AW 
ARRL Bulletin 15  ARLB015
From ARRL Headquarters 
Newington CT  May 7, 2021
To all radio amateurs
 
SB QST ARL ARLB015
ARLB015 First-Time Exam Applicants Must Obtain FCC Registration Number before Taking Exam
 
Beginning May 20, 2021, all amateur examination applicants will be required to provide an FCC Registration Number (FRN) to the
Volunteer Examiners (VEs) before taking an amateur exam. This is necessary due to changes the FCC has made to its licensing system.
 
Amateur candidates who already have an FCC license, whether for amateur radio or in another service, already have an FRN and can use
the same number. All prospective new FCC licensees, however, will be required to obtain an FRN before the examination and provide that
number to the volunteer examiners on the Form 605 license application. An FCC instructional video provides step-by-step
instructions on how to obtain an FRN through the FCC's COmmission REgistration System (CORES).
 
The video is available at, https://www.fcc.gov/rofrn .
 
The FRN is required for all new applicants to take an amateur exam and is used afterward by the applicant to download the license
document from the FCC Universal Licensing System (ULS), upgrade the license, apply for a vanity call sign, and to submit administrative
updates (such as address and email changes) and renewal applications.
 
In addition, after June 29, all applications will be required to contain an email address for FCC correspondence. Applicants will
receive an email direct from the FCC with a link to the official electronic copy of their license whenever a license is issued or
changed. ARRL VEC suggests that those without access to email to use the email address of a family member or friend. Licensees will be
able to log in to the ULS using their FRN and password to download the latest version of their license at any time. The FCC no longer
provides paper license documents.

Tropospheric Ducting

K9KWG Curtis
 

Hello,

I was driving in to work this morning and when I hit a relatively high elevation (on 840 maybe a mile or two before the I-40 junction), I had another FM commercial (music) radio station broadcast over top of what I was listening to on the radio (92.9).  I am confident the interfering station was a commercial radio station (it was playing commercials), but I couldn't make out any information as to location since they were both coming in overtop of eachother.

As a new HAM, this got me wondering if I was experiencing tropospheric ducting or some other cause.  I did look at a tropospheric ducting forecast when I got to work, and it looks like that may have been the case.

Has anyone experienced any tropospheric ducting on amateur radio this morning?  Does it seem likely this is what was happening?

Thanks,
Curtis K9KWG
