Days 246 to 255

To get me back up to date, I’m going to do a couple of big updates and because each one will cover around ten days it’s going to be a log extract in the form of a list as I reckon that’s the easiest way to do it.  There’s a nice range of contacts there […]

Days 237, 238 and 239 – some JT65, RTTY, SSB, PSK31 and even some FM

I’ve noticed that my operating tends to go in phases, sometimes I’ll work just 40m, or other times I’ll be operating exclusively on SSB and at the moment I’m in a datacomms phase where a huge chunk of my time is spent operating the data modes. So to kick off, on day #237  I first […]

Days 194, 195 and 196 – I’ve got a new wireless!

As you can see from the above, I’m now the proud owner of a Kenwood TS-590S. I spoke to the insurance company on Thursday morning and we went through the details of my claim. Only one item was questioned as they’d managed to find the same model laser printer I’d listed at £40 cheaper than […]

Days 169, 170 and 171 – WSPR on 6m and Contestia

I started day #169 by working a couple of Special Event stations on 40m, I worked MU/EA1SA followed by GB0GCR and GB2MOF then I had a contact with EA3PT, Jordi on 15m.  I then had RTTY QSOs on 20m with TF5B, Billi and PI65ALK.  It was the 6m Trophy contest and so I gave away […]

Days 64, 65 and 66 – Three very busy days

Day #64 dawned and with it the fact that it was a Saturday morning with contests throughout the day on both HF and 144MHz. Before I did any contest operating though I had two PSK31 QSOs on 40m with DC2QT, Heinrich in Germany and G6UWK, Jon who is in Manningtree, about ten miles away from […]

Days 49, 50 and 51 – Three new DXCC entities

I’d just arrived at work on day #49 when my mobile phone rang, it was Yan, M0YNK with exciting news.  He’d just arrived outside his work QTH and had noticed that 10m was a little lively.  In fact it was more than a little lively as I could hear in the background, it was very […]
