I know I’ve not updated this blog for some months but don’t panic, I’m not actually dead!
Although I’ve not done much operating this year, I have still been playing radio. I’ve been melting a lot of solder building WSPR and QRSS transmitters and there’s normally some RF being transmitted on an HF band somewhere running very low power from this QTH. I’m having a lot of fun testing different aerials and different power levels and still enjoying radio.
Everything goes in cycles and as a result, I’ve hardly had any QSOs this year – A quick check of my log shows that I’ve made just 220 contacts in 2014.
I changed my car about six months ago and I fitted a new Kenwood TM-D710GE wireless. My old Kenwood TM-D700E has been retired and the new model does a lot more. I’d had some problems getting the GPS working but the GE model has a GPS built in so as a result, I can be tracked as G6NHU-9 pretty much every time I’m out and about.
