Welcome my NI0Z Ham Blog
This website is a means for me to share my thoughts and notes as I explore this great hobby of AM radio. You'll find my musings in the form of questions asked and answered, notes and thoughts around small projects I will undertake in building my station and hopefully some links that beginners like myself will find useful. I have done this with other hobbies as well and have found myself coming back to revisit old notes, links and resources. To that end this is also an online version of my own personal notebook.
Just as a note, some of the articles on the old site had several hundred hits, however, the hit count was lost when moving them to the new site.
Roaring Star You Ask?
The RoaringStar.com domain name was ill conceived like many other domain names in the head scratching quest to find an appealing name that had not yet been used. A roaring star is a very hot burning star that if approached within a million light-years in space would be making a huge roaring sound. The sound is deafening, so much so that no life on any other planet within a hundred light-years can hear anything else above the decibels it cranks out. Such power and strength in communications, obviously in moderation and without annoying others, is the eventual vision for my station. This vision, if ever realized, is still years ahead in my future as I journey towards the roaring star!
If you believe such nonsense then I have some oil wells on some swamp land I would like to sell you!
