#HAMR Doing some FT8 @ 144mhz calls while waiting for the moon to get enough elevation for #EME
Santa, ehhh sorry, the postman just brought in a new toy here.
It is a radio, but not HAM-radio, sorry.
It is time to retire my soon to be 30-year-old Sony FM stereo receiver.
The successor is going to be this Yamaha Network/FM/DAB+ receiver, which has all kind of bells and whistles. (Just barely tested it, but it sounds very good)
After serving me for many years, my good old keyer, microham mkII stopped keying last night.
Of course this happens at the least convenient time, during a contest.
I got an idea of where the fault lies, but if any of you guys has a schematic if the MKII lying around, I would VY much like a copy.

Ready to participate in the ARRL EME contest this weekend. I just hope the local noise levels settles a bit. If not, I am only going to hear the big guns.
Everything is tested and ready for the #CQWWRTTY 2017 #hamr #hamradio #contest
Good luck & I will see you on the bands.
Here I am cleaning up in my father’s workshop. It is the year of 1979 I believe.
As shown in my previous post, my new 144MHz antenna setup works much better than before.
It has been a very busy morning, whit lot of QSO’s. Even worked a single yagi station, only worked 4 and up yagi stations before.
