Station Photo

I just snapped a photo of the shack setup and am posting it here. Outside, I’ve got a 40-meter Windom in an inverted-vee configuration, with the apex at about 25 feet. Yeah, not a great antenna, but it’s sure better than NO antenna.

I listened around a bit today and worked some 30 and 40 meter CW. Forty meters is pretty well populated tonight, and it’s a good night to be indoors. Here it is spring, and it’s snowing again on the Virginia coast.

I’ve been noticing a constant carrier on 14.030.50 … no idea what it is. Saw some mention of it on one of the QRZ forums that I noticed. Oh well, I guess it’ll just have to be one of the great mysteries of life.

Quick Catch!

I was just tuning around this morning and not hearing much, and then tuned 30 meters and heard one station calling CQ JA — FS/LY2IJ. Several stations calling him, but I sent my callsign once and got an immediate 599 back from him. New one on 30! Sometimes just spinning the dial aimlessly pays off!
