Days 337 to 343 – Aerial work at the Martello Tower and the 2m UKAC

I had a nice lot of QSOs on day #337, largely on the higher bands again.  I was up at a reasonable time and had a couple of CQ shouts on 10m, first working UV3QF, Igor and UA6BCB, Vlad.  I … Continue reading

Days 334, 335 and 336 – Not much happening

This is a very small update.  The bands have been really dead in the evenings and the fact that I didn’t have an aerial for 40m following it falling down means it’s been a difficult three days. Day #334 was … Continue reading

Days 328, 329 and 330 – Another new aerial

Days 325, 326 and 327 – Three average days on the wireless

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

Days 320, 321 and 322 – Lots of JT65A reception reports

I didn’t have too many QSOs on these three days, largely because I was running some extended JT65A receive sessions which were quite interesting. On day #320 I spoke to W2WP, Mike and N4CCA, Don on 20m SSB and then … Continue reading
