Amateur (Ham) Radio

Amateur "ham" radio has long been an interest of mine, from walkie-talkies for personal use to being a distant radio relay during a search for a missing person. My current interests lie in hand-held transceivers (HTs), such as we use at Burning Man and the Bay to Breakers, but I'm always open to people hooking me on new toys.

73s, KE6DZF.

Because I needed to know how to modify my radio for the Search and Rescue work I do, I researched and wrote "Modifying the Kenwood TH-78 handheld transceiver".

Here are the (mostly) complete listings of California municipal radio frequencies. Because they're so large I've broken them up into several parts. Scanner enthusiasts, search-and-rescue folks, and emergency services workers will find these file useful to have while you're travelling (and working) around California. These listings date from about 1993, when I first put them on the web.

California towns (A through C)
California towns (D through I)
California towns (J through M)
California towns (N through R)
California towns (S)
California towns (T through Z)

Yosemite National Park frequencies.

San Francisco Fleet Week celebration frequencies, including the U. S. Navy's Blue Angels acrobatic flying team. There's also San Francisco Office of Emergency Services frequencies.

Kaua'i (Hawai'i) municipal frequencies.

The Resurrection of KPH, the wireless giant of the Pacific, tells of the glory days of a marine radio station in Point Reyes, California, and plans for its future.

Have you found errors nontrivial or marginal, factual, analytical and illogical, arithmetical, temporal, or even typographical? Please let me know; drop me email. Thanks!
