Enjoy reading about diverse facets of amateur radio? Like building projects? Sometimes find my videos hard to find? If any of these applies to you check out my upgraded website at https://vk3ye.com .
A lot's been done. For a start the technical section has been expanded with more articles about more aspects of electronics and radio. Join me as I dismantle and explain various pieces of gear, ranging from consumer to professional. There's features on electronic parts you can get for free or very cheaply. And components and what they do get a new section with pointers to numerous videos.
The 'Beginner and General' section has also grown. This has many more articles on more topics including newer digital modes. Some older articles have had updates. You can read more reviews, with this section better organised.
Antennas and projects are two of my site's popular sections. Much more has been added, incorporating much material that first appeared here on The Daily Antenna. Examples include using sports oval lights as antennas, Rowland Rings, quick antennas for the higher HF, VHF and UHF bands and more. The projects department also has items added in all sections.
To cap it off, everything's on a faster and better server. Links from the old Alphalink url have redirects but if you do have a website that links to it please change them over to the new vk3ye.com address.
Happy reading and building!
