XW8BM on 160 – recording
XW8BM on 160 tonight, peaked up to very clear 579 for 5 minutes around 23:20-23:25 but nobody worked him. Spotted him and he disappeared immediately. Embarrassing!
IOTA contest – G4DBN reappears on HF
Step one: find a WebSDR site and realise you can still copy CW quite fast
Step two: tie a rock on the end of a rope and throw it into a tree
Step three: find a reel of TV coax and some transformer wire and a bit of perspex.
Step four: make a 20m dipole.
Step five: retrieve ancient Kenwood from a dust-covered box
Step six: put a 9V battery in ancient homebrew keyer and plug in dusty Bencher paddle.
Outcome: Enormous fun playing in the IOTA contest
