Matthew, Rich, Bill, and John were guests at Buddy Morgan's Weak Signal Society Meeting. The meeting was held Saturday, November 11. All toll, there were 21 members and guests present.
Weak signal as I understand it is a subset of amateur radio that deals with signal transmission on frequencies VHF and higher over large distances. Large distances may be 400 miles. Weak signal differs from QRP which may reach another station thousands of miles away using 5 watts power compared to a thousand watt signal at higher frequencies reaching another station only about a quarter of that distance. The difference is in the transmission frequency, not the power used to transmit. For sure, both signals may be weak when they arrive, but only the VHF and higher frequencies qualify as weak signal contacts.
Towers are very important for this type of radio, and
Buddy has two.
