HAM SAT to flash morse code

On Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) the Japanese students who built FITSAT-1 are planning to activate the satellite's LED optical array and flash a message in Morse Code to Earth. The Morse message may be visible with the unaided eye. (Project web-site)

Wouxun KG-UV6D - First impression

Since my 2 meters handy Rexon RL-102 was too old and not in good condition, I decided to buy something new, like VHF/UHF handheld with DTMF and CTCSS. After reading the reviews of radios, I choosed Wouxun latest model KG-UV6D. This radio was praised for good voice quality of the speaker and attractive price. Well.. it was very easy to find a sellers of this radio at InterRadio, but quite difficult to buy it because of long queue!
