Welcome to 2016 – My Ham Goals For The Year

Happy New Year!

Now that 2015 has come to a close and we have a whole new year ahead of us, I’ve decided to set some ham radio goals for the year. I am probably being overly ambitious but if I can get few items checked off I will be happy.

Here are the goals I have set for 2016. They aren’t in any particular order.

  • Continue practicing CW on a daily basis
  • Make my first CW contact by mid February
  • Make lots of HF contacts (CW, SSB, Digital)
  • Study for, and achieve Advanced Certification
  • Acquire a new tower, hf beam, rotor (and get them installed)
  • Purchase and install new Yaesu System Fusion compatible radio (our club now has three YSF repeaters)
  • Purchase and build a kit radio of some sort
  • Become more involved in the technical side of our radio club operations

What are your ham radio goals for 2016? Feel free to comment and let me know. I will also post updates throughout the year when I manage to accomplish some of these.

73 for now!
