I have been inactive on the radio for a few days. I broke radio silence this morning by making my first ever meteor scatter contact! I was able to send and receive FSK441 signals on 6 meters to VE1SKY in Nova Scotia from my father’s house.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring!

Thank you for reading my post.

On Thursday, I made did some ragchewing on 20 meters as I crossed into Howard County, MD and into Baltimore. I ran no new counties.

On Friday, I did zero radio related activities. I don’t know if I will do any tomorrow, but there is a possibility of running a few of Maryland’s Eastern Shore counties, though I have run all of these before.

Thank you for reading my post!

I added several new counties in Texas and Arkansas yesterday.  I haven’t listened to my logs to see how many QSOs I made, but it has been a bunch!

I added:
TX: Hunt, Hopkins, Franklin, Camp, Titus, Morris, Cass, Bowie
AR: Miller, Hempstead, Nevada, Clark, Hot Spring, Grant, Jefferson, Arkansas

I also worked W1AW/3 in Maryland, also on 20 meter SSB.

I will do some more mobile operating today,

Yesterday, I began a cross-country road trip, traveling from Rio Rancho, NM, to Garland, TX, last night.

Along the way, I made several QSOs on 20 meters, though just two or three. I picked up several for the ARRL Centennial Contest, though I don’t know much about how the points are calculated.

Today, I will run counties until dark on 14.336 MHz, as I travel from Garland, TX, to Nashville, TN.

Thank you for reading my post!

On Thursday, I worked N4CD/M in Caddo, OK, on 20 meters from Bernalillo County, NM.

Friday, I did no radio related activities.

Today, I’ve been playing in the ARRL 10 meter contest. I’m up to 42 QSOs, and will release a full report sometime at the end of the contest.

Yesterday, I checked into the Albuquerque SCAT Net on 2 meters from my house. At first, I was having trouble checking in. Every time I keyed the transmitter, it rebooted the transmitter. I switched the power cord to a different line on my RigRunner, and it worked.
I will have to investigate this issue perhaps this weekend.

I am still slogging through my DX4Win logs. After that, I’ll send out some QSL cards, and then it will be time for the 10 meter contest this weekend, and then some mobile operating over the holidays.

Thank you for reading my post.

I picked up W1AW/7 in Montana yesterday evening. I was really happy- I broke a pile up from my car.

I am slowly working through my DX4Win logs. I have updated several mobile excursions, but still have a few hundred contacts to log!

Thank you for reading my post!
