Youth of the Month 

Marty KC1CWF recipient of the November 2015 Youth of the Month!


My name is Marty Sullaway, KC1CWF. I was recently reading about your youth program, and was curious about it. I am 13 years old and was licensed a year ago. I love contesting and DXing, and just earned DXCC and WAS. I am on the board of the Clay Center Amateur Radio Club, a youth radio club at a local school, and love helping kids learn about ham radio. In fall, 2015 I founded the Eastern Massachusetts Contesting Club, KC1ENE. The club's goal is to get more youth involved and interested in contesting". 

RemoteHamRadio's Youth program is a one-year program that includes 300 minutes per month and is completely free to the  recipient.  RHR will announce a new recipient typically every month. If you are interested in supporting this program you can  contact us  for details.

 New Maine Site!


We are very excited to announce our newest addition to the RHR station lineup. With 63 beautiful flat and cleared acres, we have some pretty crazy plans for this QTH! We believe that this specific station is the closest U.S. amateur radio station to the European continent. Operating with virtually no man made noise floor is an absolute pleasure to experience. 


Logging on RHR is here!

   The DNA of RHR was to reinvent the way radio operators experience the hobby. We wanted to take an old hobby and make it new again. The first thing we delivered was a high quality service coupled with intuitive station control technology that did not require a software download. We then engineered the ability to operate both SSB and CW directly inside a web browser with no additional hardware or software, we called this WebDX. We are now proud to show you how we feel the world of logging is going to be changed from this point forward. 

   The initial integrated logging functionality may seem basic to the eye but under the covers, complex calculations are being performed. For starters, when you power on a station we handle all the station data for you in that log entry. For instance, If you log a QSO from W2/Summit, that log entry will be auto populated with the Frequency, Band, Mode, State, Grid Square, Country and zones, all automagically. How many hours or perhaps days have you lost attempting to setup LOTW with your favorite logging program? Have many times have you given up, some of you may have simply walked away and never finished the setup. Those days are all over now with the RHR integrated logger. You simply upload your .p12 certificate from within you account page and we take care of uploading every QSO correctly signed for you! Yes its that simple. 
   This is our first "beta" rollout of what we feel is going to change the future of logging. The features are very basic today but that won't be the case in the future. We will be adding amazing new features and functions from this point forward.

New 80M 4SQ Array

Wow! This site keeps getting better and better and we are not stopping here! A newly engineered and erected full size 80m four square is now in full operation. A user recently reported working a mobile user in central Europe with a simple whip antenna with Q5 copy in both directions on 80m with the new antenna! Stay tuned, we have a number of other additions in the works at this site as well.

QRO Power on 160M with 4SQ array at 2200' ASL

It's that time of year again, we have the dedicated top band station up and running. This 1.5KW connected to a 160m four square sitting at 2300'ASL is simply a flame thrower into the Europe. The QRO + the gain of the array produces approximetely 5KW of ERP that you can point in four directions. The leaves fall early in summit!
