The cool photo on the right is from KE7FVB, and is either a frozen Oregon T-Rex or one of his ex-wives. On the left, sent in by WA7ZNZ, is a late December shot of the small barn on Washington County's "Pumpkin Ridge," which houses the 145.45 megaherz (millions of cycles per second) HAM (Amateur Radio) repeater. This electric machine receives radio signals from places as distant as the Coast Range, then rebroadcasts them at much higher power, thus magnifying the reach of small low-power portable amateur radio emergency stations.. The "45" repeater was built and is maintained by a group of HAMs which calls itself the ORFN repeater association. "ORFN" is an acronym which stands for "Oregon Radio Flatulence Network."
