Days 364 and 365 – Some QRSS and a bit of everything to wrap up QSO365

Days 344 and 345 – The ARRL 10m Contest

These two days were the ARRL 10m contest and I had high hopes for it.  I had a mental target of 500 QSOs over the course of the weekend but things didn’t go as well as expected.  I started off … Continue reading

Days 328, 329 and 330 – Another new aerial

Day #328 was very nearly the end of QSO365!  It’s incredible to think that the project could fail this close to the end but it only takes some bad propagation and it could all be over.  I got home in the evening … Continue reading

Days 323 and 324 – The LZ DX contest

I’d planned in advance to make a bit of an effort in the LZ DX contest and so on the Saturday morning I attempted to re-route the coax that currently goes to the OCFD I have up and replace it … Continue reading
