We have mentioned it before, but will do it again! The Spectrum Monitor (TSM) is an awesome publication for the radio enthusiast!
I really look forward to getting this publication each month! Great writers with an excellent variety of articles and columns each month. I am a charter subscriber since its beginning in 2014. It is very similar to the former Monitoring Times magazine which discontinued publication in 2013.
Check out TSM on their web site at: http://www.thespectrummonitor.com/index.aspx
TSM is usually around 100 pages and is packed with the latest on Amateur Radio, Shortwave, Scanning, Satellites, Radio/TV, Vintage radio, etc. The news and articles are always up to date and relevant. TSM is available only in PDF format and can be read on any device capable of opening a PDF file. I read TSM both on my tablet and PC. I also occasionally print out interesting articles that I might need for future reference in the shack.
The TSM publisher, Ken Reitz KS4ZR, is the former managing editor, features editor, columnist and feature writer for Monitoring Times. As well as a former feature writer and columnist for several other publications. TSM has some very experienced and talented writers that do a great job of covering many interesting topics each month!

“The KD2SL repeater on 145.15 is off the air as of 4:00 pm on January 10th, because the antennas for 2 meters and the 440 link to Auburn have to be removed from the tower. It may be possible to move the repeater to the other TV tower and restore the tie-in with Auburn, but it could take weeks, or even months to accomplish this. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”

Happy New Year!
Here we go into a new year! We are starting our 10th year at UpstateHam.com and appreciate everyone's continued support and contributions to this great hobby! Please continue to send us your event notices, comments and suggestions. (email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org )
Hopefully we are reaching a peak in the Covid situation and that things will improve as we go through the winter months. We hope you and your family are safe and getting through these very challenging times.
Hats off to the clubs and groups who continue to hold on-line meetings, training events and VE exams during the pandemic. We have attended several on-line meetings over the last 18 months that have been very well run. I hope some of these types of meetings and trainings might stay as regular options for some of us who are challenged by distance or other circumstances!
Don't forget that Winter Field day is coming up on January 29-30, 2022. Great time to get outside or participate from the warmth of your own shack. (learn more here: https://www.upstateham.com/2021/12/winter-field-day.html
We are also still optimistic about sunspot cycle 25 which is looking more promising everyday! Take a minute to check the low bands, as we have continued to find some really nice openings lately!
We are hopeful that hamfests and in-person meetings will start/continue to be held as the situation improves. Watch our pages for Event updates as they become available.
