[SOC] Is it collecting our email address's ?

SOC -- Second Class Operators' Club

SOC mailing list
This list hosted by:
Please help support this email list:
73, D.J.J. Ring, Jr.

Its common knowledge on the streets and amateur radio equipment manufactures that we outnumber the first class operators 20 to 1.

My logic is most likely flawed, seems to me that our www site will be hacked more often than others and strange www links posted.
Are some of these links there just to identify active email address's for later use ?

A email harvester of sorts.
By the time your reading this email I've posted to the SOC somebody at the arrl headquarters is probably wondering if either the wouffhong or the rettysnitch will make it through airport security for transport to Alaska.

To deal with people for asking such questions about posts to our SOC forum.
These people even have a organization & www site.
And yes, I use a vibroplex bug key and my cw qso's last longer the usual 12 to 15 seconds.

Vibroplex, known instrument of TORTURE.
Especially with LONG dashes and a few extra dits for seasoning.
I can hear it now: A L 7 J K PLS K.
Eeeeek, a bug!

Dear SPUTNIK & Low Power minded radio Friends.

Big congrats to Oleg ,RV3GM for the new "Sputnik activity days 2015 here my entree:

Lately a bit busy with my new "SPUTNIK MK2-made-in-Belgium (sri some backlog orders for a special Russian customer) but finally could make a lot of steam whoehahaha (the 2 tubes in PP are 1P24b) for the moment 80 meters is alive and kicking !

Just only connecting the RED (on air) and GREEN (st-by) LEDs and we are in buzziness for a lift off:-) for the SPUTNIK entries:

Power output is limited to 800mW ( resistor in the screen grids) now making other tankcoils for new Horizons :-)

Tonite hope to make my first beep beep beep QSO on 80 meters.

If someone could be QRV around 19:00 UTC ? +/- 3550 3560 3575 KHz will be beeping there curious but my rocks are vibrating nearly 1 KHz higher then in other transmitters schematic = Frank C.Jones Push Pull Transmitter (Radio Handbook 1937).

Cheerio Jos  ON6WJ

Front tank coils are wound on big Syringes in octal sockets change of bands ?

Just other tankcoil" and another rock"


Good beep-beeping to all here

Cheers 72+73 Jos ON6WJ
