Days 234, 235 and 236

It’s holiday time now so I’m spending a little more time on the wireless.  Of course, because it’s holiday means that I’m out and about doing stuff during the day and taking time late at night when I’d normally be in bed to play radio. I’ve had an update from John at Aerial-Parts of Colchester to […]

Days 228, 229 and 230 – One more new DXCC and plenty of JT65

My last QSO on day #227 was a new DXCC so it was a nice surprise for my only contact on day #228 to be another new one – I worked Eduardo, CO8LY in Cuba on 17m PSK31. I had a lot more contacts on day #229 though, I started off by talking to IV3SUS, […]

Days 225, 226 and 227 – An unexpected new DXCC

I had one QSO on day #225, I worked IZ5GST, Steve on 40m.  40m was my mainstay earlier in the year but the summer doldrums are making it quite tricky at times on the band right now.  Conditions will change rapidly and one moment I’ll be waiting for someone to finish a QSO and before […]

Days 222, 223 and 224

I’ve run a bit more data over these three days than I have for a while largely because my mind has been preoccupied with the plans for a big move at work and it’s easier to throw the wireless on and have a data contact than it is to actually speak to someone!  I’m a […]

Days 216, 217 and 218 – The “European HF Championship”

I had one contact on day #216, I spoke to I2BEO, Julio on 40m. I doubled that on day #217 when I had two QSOs, firstly I spoke to ER1SS, Vlad on 6m and then I had a quick word with Braco, E77DX on 10m. Day #218 saw a few more QSOs though.  I started […]

Days 206, 207 and 208 – I’ve got data modes again

I’ve still got a lot of things happening at home and work.  We’re ramping up towards a major event at work happening in a couple of weeks so there’s a lot of preparation going on.  That’s not stopping me from keeping this project going though. On day #206 I worked two stations on 40m, SE6Y, […]

Days 175, 176 and 177 – I’ve now worked 100 DXCC entities

I’ve done a fair bit of data over these three days, largely but not exclusively down to a contest at the weekend which was 75 baud RTTY and PSK63. Day #175 didn’t include a contest though but I still had a go with some PSK – I worked SP3SLO (Paul), F8KHR (Dom), OK1DOZ (Beda), UT1PA […]

Days 172, 173 and 174 – Svalbard?

On day #172 I switched the wireless on to find it still on 20m from the last QSO of the previous night and so I tuned around to hear RA3PCI, Sergey calling CQ.  It would have been rude not to answer so we had a chat and then I moved to 40m to work J48O, […]

Days 109, 110 and 111 – Logbook online

Just one QSO on day #109, I worked N2HTT, Michael in New York State on 20m. On day #110 I had two contacts, UA1NAN, Eugene on 20m and then I had a QSO on the same band using PSK31 with R3WF, Alex. There were a few more contacts on day #111 and they were all […]

Days 73, 74 and 75 – The 50’s American Diner

Day #73 started off with a 20m QSO with YO3FTI, Andrei in Romania before I changed to 80m and worked Chris, G4LOP near Skegness and then SP3BQC, Jurek in Poland. On day #74 I was purely on 80m for the 3 QSOs I had with DO1WRB, DD6AJ and G3RED, Wolfgang, Michael and David respectively. I […]
