Daily Radio Report: 9/22/14   Leave a comment

I was unable to get into the Albuquerque SCAT Net this morning from my car. Likely, I had the tone set wrong, but I will try again later this week.

I did work W1AW/4 in North Carolina this evening on 20 meter single side band. That makes 11 states of the centennial celebration!

Thank you for reading my post!

I managed to work another W1AW station yesterday evening on 20 meter sideband. This one was from Connecticut.

Since I last spoke of these, I worked one in Oregon, one in Texas and now one in Connecticut. I heard one in North Carolina, but couldn’t figure out how to run a split on my Yaesu (especially while driving).

I have attached a state map of the states that I have worked a W1AW station.

Last night, I listened to 20 meters and heard stations all over the country. I heard W1AW/4 in North Carolina, but he was listening “up 3″, and I couldn’t set my radio up for a split while I was driving. I will try again today, and perhaps work him. I heard someone talking to a station in Rio Rancho as well, but I didn’t get either call sign, as I spent most of my time hunting the W1AW stations. I heard a really weak Japanese station, and there were a series of pile ups from 14.250 MHz to 14.260 MHz, but I couldn’t hear the stations everyone was trying to work.

Soon after I posted yesterday, I worked W1AW/7 in Oregon on 20 meters. I had worked him before, but it was good to hear him again.

I missed checking into the Albuquerque SCAT Net this morning because I was chatting with someone at the train station instead of turning on my radio.

I checked into the Albuquerque SCAT Net this morning on 145.330 MHz from my Yaesu VX-7R.

My battery is almost dead, so I will charge it tonight.

I was traveling in another person’s car this weekend, so I had no radio time. Hopefully, this weekend will be different.

I did absolutely nothing radio related on 9/3. I tuned around for a few minutes on 20 meters but couldn’t break the pileup for a Brazilian station, and heard my friend, AE7KI, chatting with a few other stations.

This morning, I checked into the Albuquerque SCAT Net from my house in Rio Rancho. I will be driving my car to Socorro, so perhaps I will make a few more contacts along the way. Band conditions seemed to have improved over the last few days, so perhaps I’ll work a few more.

I checked into the Albuquerque SCAT Net this morning from the train station on my Yaesu VX-7R.

I listened on 20 meters this morning and heard a few more stations. Perhaps band conditions are improving. There was a New Zealand station with a pileup that I couldn’t break in the limited time I had this morning.

Thank you for reading my post!
