Hello. I'm W7KYG. This is a place where I collect information about Amateur Radio. Below are announcements that may be of interest to amateur radio operators.

Solar Eclipse QSO Party on Apr 8
There is another solar eclipse on April 8 and we will be able to experience totality in most of the DFW area. Strange things happen to radio signals during the eclipse because the ionosphere lowers and 4 layers merge into 2 layers as the moon's shadow passes over. Scientists need the help of amateur radio operators to provide them with valuable data to aid in their study of this phenomenon. For more information see hamsci.org/seqp-rules
I am experimenting with a new Broadcastify feed. Usually you'll hear ARES, RACES and SKYWARN repeaters and commonly used simplex frequencies in the DFW area. You'll hear many scheduled training nets
throughout the week. Sometimes you'll hear activity from outside DFW such as Parks On The Air and special event station activations, or the W5DFW repeater on 29.66 MHz. See North Central Texas Amateur Radio
for more information.
Social network servers for hams
There are US-based Hams.Social
and Europe-based Mastodon.Radio
servers are available for Amateur radio operators who like to socialize. There you will find many friendly ham operators and they usually keep their conversations mostly focused on ham-related topics. The servers are connected to the Fediverse
allowing you to socialize with users on hundreds of other servers. You can find me here on Mastodon
