If as a Amateur Radio Operator you have never experienced the thrill of making that first weak signal contact on VHF and higher then you are missing out on a great aspect of the hobby and an entire frontier of Amateur radio. Words can not express the thrill the first time you experience making a contact on VHF or UHF that is 200, 500, 600 or a 1000 miles away.
The HAMster Amateur Radio group is about promoting this exciting area of our hobby from 50 Mhz to 1296 Mhz. The goal is to bring Experienced Weak Signal Operators and Weak Signal "rookies" together. To encourage and promote weak signal operations, contest activity and contact weekends.
Do not fall for the myth that you must have a massive antenna system, huge amps and thousands upon thousands invested. A modest station with solid band conditions can work hundreds of miles with great consistency. My first 2 meter weak signal contact was 780 miles with a 100 watts and a stacked set of 13 element beams.
So come on, join in the fun and encourage your friends to take part in this very exciting part of our hobby.
