HOAs have their own Union! K4KYV 1 week, 6 days ago
Right, but if you signed a contract? That's the problem Congress is dealing with (or should be) -- reconciling property rights, public interest, and the "sanctity" of private contracts. Hams have a better argument for the first two. Your neighbors may be focusing on the third.

email forwarding N1ZX 2 weeks, 1 day ago
arrl.net for the forwarded addresses.

arrl.org is for headquarters people, mainly. Yes, it's a bit confusing.

Email forwarding question n1chu 2 weeks, 3 days ago
Zack is right. You need to configure your personal devices (PC, phone, whatever) to receive mail through your provider's email servers. Your main address is (still) some-user@comcast.net, for example.

The ARRL forwarding service is just that. Any mail that gets sent to your-callsign@arrl.net will automatically be FORWARDED (resent) to your usual email address some-user@comcast.net, and you will see it pop up as incoming email on your Comcast account.

(Your outgoing emails, such as responses to arrl.net forwarded mail, will appear to be from your Comcast account. If that's a problem, your provider [Comcast] probably has a way to allow outgoing mail to appear to come from your-callsign@arrl.net, but that's something you would have to check out with them.)

ARRL does not operate a mail server (with user accounts, etc.) for the membership. It is only a forwarding service.

Heathkit SB-200 Restoration & Problem Steffen on 16/9/14
What frequency are you using? Is the SB200 band switch set correctly? Did you try tuning the amplifier? The straight-through operation bypasses everything.

If that's all OK, it sounds like the SB200 antenna relay might not be switching, especially if the amp tuning has no effect.

Good luck & 73

We have recently had an X-class solar flare (1823 9/10/14). Check http://www.n3kl.org/sun/noaa.html, for example. That's a very big flare. The UV radiation and X-rays will make very high D-layer absorption that kills the HF bands pretty well -- on the sunlit side of Earth. You can see that in real time at http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/drap/index.html . I would expect it to die away after a number of hours.

The X and UV effects of a flare are pretty much instantaneous. There may also be a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that travels more slowly. CME's are directed and very often miss the Earth entirely. If this one hits us, it may produce a serious geomagnetic event. That will upset HF propagation (again), and it may cause problems for power transmission lines.
