Amateur Radio This Week: 2018.41   Leave a comment

This week, I was not nearly as active on the radio as I had intended.  I think I only made one HF QSO.  I will probably listen to 20 meters and 40 meters more this week.

I thought this weekend was the CA QSO Party, but I did not hear any stations on 40 meters.

I did log into the Albuquerque SCAT Net several times and the Caravan Club Net on Sunday night.

I updated my logbooks, DX4Win and LOTW.

Perhaps this week, I will start catching up on QSL cards.  I may also have a trip to Denver in the works.  I will know that later this week.

That is about the extent of my radio activity this week.

Thank you for reading my post.

This week was much calmer on the air.  I listened to 40 meters most nights and most mornings, and I turned on 20 meters most days.  Nothing.  Very little activity on HF at all.  I did make one contact.

Unfortunately, I also missed the Duke City Hamfest.  It was this weekend, and I just had too many other irons in the fire.

I did check into the Caravan Club Net once on the UHF side, and the Albuquerque SCAT Net twice, so I did get in a little radio time.

I also updated my logbooks, DX4Win and LOTW.

I finally updated my logbook! Later today, I will also update DX4Win and the graphics on this website.

Speaking of graphics, I am changing image servers, so I will need to move quite a few of my photos to another server by February. This blog does not have many to move, but some of my blogs do, so it is quite a chore.

Radio-wise, I checked into the Caravan Club net on 70 centimeters this past Sunday. I had not checked into this net in ages, so it was nice to see that it was still running. I will try to check into it again this week. I have not been able to check into the SCAT Net, as I have been just barely able to make my train each morning, so I have not messed with the radio.

Thank you for reading my post.

This week was super busy for me at the Summer Science Program (SSP), so I did not do much radio play at all.  In fact, I made zero contacts.  I am really bummed out that I did not even get on the air for Field Day, but it just was not possible with my schedule.

I did update my logbooks to reflect my travels to Boulder, CO, and I updated one of the graphics on this website.  I have operated from 30 grid squares at this time, and hope to get more later this summer.

I looked up VHF/UHF nets here in the Boulder area, and perhaps I will check into a few of those.

Thank you for reading my post.

Amateur Radio This Week: 2018.24   Leave a comment

Guess what?  I’m finally doing all that stuff I claimed I would do.  I have updated my entire logbook, and am about 3/4 of the way through DX4Win updates.  I have uploaded my logs to Logbook of the World, though many of them no longer count for the GridSquare Chase, unfortunately.

Speaking of Grid Squares, I went for a drive Saturday morning and picked up DM63 and DM73 in New Mexico.  Two new grid squares for me!  I made all of my contacts on 20 meter SSB.

I will update the graphics soon.  I worked three new counties on my storm chase and quite a few new grid squares.  All of that will be posted here.

Thank you for reading my post.

This has been a roller-coaster week for my amateur radio participation.  I started off by running a few new grid squares in Colorado and Nebraska early this week.  However, my voice recorder has died, so I don’t know if I actually can log any of these contacts.  I’m sure they are saved in memory, but the device will not power.  I may take it apart in the lab tomorrow and see if I can fix it.

After nearly giving up on that, I started recording a few contacts on my phone.    I ended up running quite a few counties in KS, OK, TX, and NM on the final days of my storm chase and the return trip home.  There are quite a few new grid squares for me to count as well.  I will log these on paper and DX4Win ASAP to make sure I don’t lose them, too.

All of my contacts were on 20 meters SSB.

Thank you for reading my post.

I had a relatively productive week on amateur radio.  I say that, but I only made a few contacts.

I took a trip to Deming, NM, and then drove even farther south from there (to the Mexican border).  Along the way, I operated from two new grid squares (DM61, DM62).  DM61 was a rare one, as it is mostly located in rural Mexico.  Even so, I only made one contact in it.  This is probably because I only had a 40 meter HF antenna and it was the middle of the day when I traveled there.

I will update the graphics as soon as I can.  Right now, the NMT FTP server is down, so I can’t update any images.

I also updated my logbooks.  Next will be updating DX4Win.

Thank you for reading my post.
