And 20m went KAPUT. I've succumbed to Mother Nature's #geomagneticstorm. Running 20m #WSPR simultaneously with #FT8 to see what pans out on this #parksontheair #pota activation. #amateurradio #hamradio #solarcycle25 #spaceweather

It's Working. Only one 20m but 20m saved the day. Difficult syncing but so far my tools are working against the BIG BAD

This weekend is packed full of radio.

Saturday morning I am taking my general.
Sunday morning is supporting a local 10k race. Sunday afternoon is the Rockville Science Fair.

I have Friday off and if the weather cooperates, I'll do a POTA activation. 🤞

today was a real first for me. Completed my first successful FT8 contact on 20m using a homebrew antenna annd a Z-match I build from a kit. This is also my first ever successful HF contact.

Antenna work/play time today. I'm testing a little 20m dipole that I built in an inverted V config. It seems to be working well. Low SWR and being heard well on - nicer radiation pattern than my sloper EFHW

sort of afternoon.
Pretty good conditions on 10m / 28MHz with strong North American stations although the QSB was also strong.

Got into the New York 10m repeater and made a couple of contacts.
I would have got into the London Ontario repeater but it was hogged by a couple of blokes talking politics for over an hour!
I resorted to and got Kentucky, Sth Carolina & Georgia before getting bored.

Still nothing heard on my new 4m / 70MHz handheld!

Been staring at radios for a little bit now. Should probably play with the radios I already have, though. Been a hot minute since I've touched anything radio related. I think I enjoy theory more than communications, which is why was so nice for me. I am quite mic shy.
