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.
My 144MHz array is finally of the ground and up where it belongs again.
Here are some pix of the setup.
Battling with some old config files after an upgrade here.
That’s why this silly warning images appear all over
…………..working on it.
Should be OK by now.
Now I am going a bit of topic again, but what is the best aircraft sound, or noise if you will?
If you ask me; nr#2 – UH-1 “Huey” Helicopter where the crew is playing the Rolling Stones, loooooooadly.
nr#1; Any aircraft, caring one or more of the famous Rolls-Royce Merlin engines; spitfire, hurricane, battle, Lancaster, etc. but the best of them all (in my mind) a P-51 Mustang fitted with the RR merlin
well, twenty was working like a champ last night, but now!
Who have turned OFF the bands?!!!
Been busy on the vhf bands doing eme and stuff the last year or so, have not done HF CW in the last six months or so. Last night I heard #WPXCW was on, could not resist participating a bit.
