Keith, G6NHU: Days 364 and 365 – Some QRSS and a bit of everything to wrap up QSO365

January 1, 2012 by

It feels a little odd to be writing this final regular update for QSO365.  It really doesn’t seem like a year ago that it all started and I’m a little relieved to be posting this update, knowing that the project has been a resounding success with not only a QSO made every day of 2011, […]

Keith, G6NHU: Days 361, 362 and 363 – Some nice DX and just what is this ROS thing?

I started day #361 in what’s become the usual way, I had two 40m JT65 QSOs, working DK6AN and DG6AOY before switching to 15m SSB and talking with LZ1ND, Ted and 5V7MA in Togo.  I then spoke to HS0ZGQ, Joe in Thailand on 10m.  After that I worked I2OHO, Luciano and RA3GS on 20m followed […]

Keith, G6NHU: Days 358, 359 and 360 – It’s Christmas!

Day #358 was Christmas Eve and so I had some QSOs first thing in the morning before I went off to hook up with the other members of the Martello Tower Group at the local cafe for a late breakfast before heading over to Coastal Communications for the traditional Christmas Eve nibbles.  I first worked […]

All QSOs over this five day period were on 40m using JT65 and the pattern is the same all the way through with one or two contacts early morning between 06:15 and 06:30 and then maybe one more at least twelve hours later after work. Day #353 KJ4QXC, Dan and UA1ZFL, Vladimir. Day #354 W2BT, […]

Keith, G6NHU: Days 351 and 352

Just in case there were problems putting my beam back up on day #351 I had a ‘banker’ 40m JT65 QSO first thing, I worked IZ2QPP, Ermes.  All went well though and so I spoke to UA9CUA on 10m SSB followed by P39P on 15m.  After that I had a chat with M3TUC, Tucker in Carlisle on […]

Keith, G6NHU: Days 346 to 350 – Early morning and late evening JT65

With my mast down and just a 40m monoband dipole up at 15ft and my 10m vertical, I was quite limited in what I could do this week because I was actually worse off for aerials than I’ve been all year.  I started with a long wire through the smarttuner so at least I could […]

Keith, G6NHU: Days 344 and 345 – The ARRL 10m Contest

December 16, 2011 by

These two days were the ARRL 10m contest and I had high hopes for it.  I had a mental target of 500 QSOs over the course of the weekend but things didn’t go as well as expected.  I started off on Saturday morning and it was difficult to get a run going and that really […]
