Now for another edition of Ham Radio Saturday.
I created a page for the List of YOUR callsigns. HERE Chime in or drop me a note if your call doesn’t appear in the list.
I’ve been really busy lately, so I haven’t been able to do much radio stuff. It has also been really cold here, and the way I have to set up my antenna involves having a door or window slightly open. Also, I have to go outside to adjust the antenna. That kills the motivation a bit.
During the upcoming week we should be able to do some work on the parish radio shack. We have the room cleared and a work list.
I had some middle of nowhere too, but driving. Lots of that last week.
Meanwhile, I had some equipment to fix. The vertical I use has a design flaw. There is a rather flimsy plastic screw that is supposed to hold the adjustable coil in place. It broke off. Very pesky.
Otherwise, it is a good antenna for me right now. HERE Thanks to a ham reader who sent it!
So… for me it’ll be a night of college hockey, Ite Rodentes. From last night.
As of this writing, I am on 40m.
