A small update

Posted: January 28th, 2008 under Hamradio.

Not much to update about really.

I joined the team at LA8W/LN8W again for the CQWW CW contest. Claimed score here.

I finally put up my BiggIR antenna. It was only used once before during the OJ0LA trip. It seemed to work well on 40 and 30, a little less effective on the higher bands, but conditions have been terrible. The bad thing is, I had to take it down early this year. The copperband curled up inside the box. Strange thing is, I haven’t read about anyone having this kind of trouble, but I know for a fact, that a few other LA’s have experienced the same thing.

Will hold a lecture about OJ0LA at LA9L in early February.

Morserunner videoes

Posted: September 23rd, 2007 under Hamradio.

Today I noticed a post on the N1MMLogger mailing list. It was a video showing N1MM interfaced with Morserunner. You can see how it’s done here.

Here are a few Morserunner videos you can watch on youtube:
W0MM giving a short tour on Morserunner.
AC7FA running Morserunner.
LU3CT running Morserunner.
AC7FA logging Morse Runner with N1MM.

SAC CW 2007 from LA8W

Posted: September 19th, 2007 under Hamradio.

I was operating SAC this weekend from LA8W. We were 3 operators this time, LB1GB, LB8IB and me (LA8AJA). Summary can be seen here.

Conditions were not good, and we’re all waiting for propagation to improve. I did manage to work 3B7C on 15/20/40 while at LA8W.

Check out the video from me working 3B7C on 20M and also a small video from SAC. Thanks to LB1GB for the video.

Worked a few qsoes in the perseids. This resulted in a few new squares and one new dxcc. I worked France for the first time on 2m. I also made my first 2m eme qso from home. KB8RQ were spotted and had a nice signal here. Take a look here to see his big antenna. It consists of 24×13 elements. I was using only 2x9el and 170watts.

6M is not much to talk about. Band during late summer hasn’t been in a very good shape. The only thing worth mentioning, is that J79PAK was heard by me and several other LA’s. As far as I know, no LA’s managed to work him.

6M has been quite good the last few weeks. I’ve managed to work 4 new ones, and several new squares. Some of the highlights worked: K1TOL, C52T (new), V44KAI (new), J8/W6JKV (new), ZB2OE (new), NP4A. Have heard HI3TEJ, FY7THF/B, 9Y4AT/B, VE8BY/B
