Ham Hijinks Covered Dayton

The Ham Hijinks news team was very busy during the Dayton Hamvention making up news stories about the biggest ham radio event of the year. Those of you that stopped by to read and comment on the stories, we thank you. To those of you that thought the restroom story was real and called/emailed Dayton officials about it, we're still shaking our heads.

In case you missed it, you can read all of our Dayton coverage here.


What People Searched For, Installment #1

It's time for the first installment of "What People Searched For To Get To"

The data is real, and we believe it to be the true pulse of amateur radio today. And now, we give you a random list of actual search terms used to get to in the past week, with some speculation thrown in for good measure:

  • lady ham-radios yl on the air videos (We have some single guys in the club, so this may be our own fault. Likely, though, the searchers were looking for this article.)
  • what happened to 14.313 (We can go on and on about what happened to that frequency. But, we think folks probably found this story or this one.)
  • special mother in law (Don't we all have special mother-in-laws? This guy has one special enough to do a special event.)
  • ham operator hit (Is this related to the Ham Radio Mafia mentioned here?)
  • hamradio catcall (See bullet point #1)

Happy searching! We hope you enjoy the site.  - 73 de K5KVN -
