Ham Radio - Get on 630 meters with a bucket variometer! Post 2016.

One of the major challenges to using the 630 meter amateur radio band, is the shortage of commercially produced transmitters, receivers, antennas, and loading coils.  Although there are several companies that market these devices, it may be best to experiment with something you build yourself.

In this video from Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW), we see a fairly simple way to "homebrew" a "bucket variometer" that will get you on the 630 meter band.

Kevin takes us step-by-step from theoretical design to finished product.  According to Kevin, the device works well and will give you many hours to explore one of our newer bands.
