Happy New Year!
I guess it’s been quite some time since I’ve posted. The last time was way back in July.
A few things have changed since then. I’ve not come into possession of a Kenwood TS-570SG (HF + 6m) and have moved my gear into my new shack. I’ll post some pictures of the shack once I get a chance to compile them. It’s a pretty cool space for a home office and ham shack. In fact, it’s not even in the house, it’s an 8 x 10 shed that I built specifically for this.
I’ve been having a blast on 10 and 12 meters lately. The bands have been wide open and it’s a lot of fun. I even got set up with Logbook of the World and eQSL so I can verify contacts. I don’t yet have any paper QSL cards but I hope to soon.
Now that winter has set it, some of my antenna projects will probably have to wait until spring. Once the weather warms up, I hope to put up a better multi-band antenna (OCF) and finally finish my 2m Yagi.
In non-ham related news, my second daughter Charlotte Avery was born on Nov 22nd so that has been taking up a lot of my free time these days.
Feel free to comment on this post and let me know what you have planned for the new year (ham or not).
73 for now!
