I don’t have special news from the last week, since I have been traveling and otherwise busy.
However, as I type, I have the EWTN feed on for Pope Francis’ arrival in Cuba. The EWTN announcer reminded us that since 1993 Mother Angelica had established shortwave broadcasts – which reach Cuba. To this day, perhaps the EWTN broadcasts as well as the Vatican Radio broadcasts, maybe be the only Catholic programming they can receive.
I hear Vatican Radio once in a while in the evening on 40m at 7.305.
The EWTN stations are HERE.
Meanwhile, not long ago, I made a contact with a station in Cuba, T46BC.
Next week I will be in a place that has lots of Ham Radio stuff. Hopefully I will have an opportunity to look at a shop or two.
My antenna is set up for 20m right now. I might try to get on the rig later in the evening.
Meanwhile, feel free to use this thread to set up your own scheds.
Finally… I am closer to getting a vanity call!
