Slow Winter for radio

During this winter I experienced some noise in the shack which caused me to slow down on the radio quite a bit. The reason for the noise was never found by me so i limited my time in the shack to a cpl hours a week. I told myself that come spring i would return to the attic shack for at least 1 hr daily, I have tried to keep to that(usually around 5am before i head off to work)the noise isnt bad when its nice out so that leads me to believe the noise is from some heating device. I have plans this summer to finally mount the 220/440 and other various antennas on the roof. Hope everyone has a good spring and hope to hear you on the air. 73 KC9KXT Jesse

What kc9kxt has been up to.

Hello readers, I have'nt been up to to much in the past 3 months in way of radio. I found a new video service that i've utilized to broadcast myself to the world while in the attic shack. Watch me at www.Livestream/kc9kxt.com . I have'nt made any new contacts for dxcc, even tho i have made several world-wide contacts. I have purchased a new Icom 2m/440m radio and a Cushcraft Beam antennafor it. I also purchased a Behringer 802 pre-amp/eq from R&L elec. in HAMilton, ohio. I plan to go to the Dayton Hamvention early next month even tho i wont have much $, but who does? 73/88...KC9KXT

My first blog on myhamshack.com

I found this site via web surfing and found it interesting enuff to join and start my own page. I have been a Ham for a few years now and generally find it very enjoyable. There are sum instances where i was dissapointed in the hobby, namely rude ops. but I wont go into details about that. I rarely dwell on negative issues. What I enjoy most in the hobby is the worldwide fellowship of amatuer radio, and ham operators. Where else can you go and talk to someone or anyone around the globe at any given time of the day? 90% of the time you will be welcomed to join a qso and say anything (mostly)and not be shunned or laughed at. If there is a disagreement about the conversation it rarely gets to a heated point. I have made friends that I contact daily, weekly, or even yearly, just to be greeted like a lifelong friend. To me these friendships are what make amatuer radio the greatest hobby for everyone. 73

Hello Jesse,
I also found this site recently just surfing around the net. I know what you’re talking about with the rudeness of some of the operators. I also have found that from time to time that I have found it to be a bit cliquish. I can remember about a year ago after I got my license that I had been listening to a group on 2 meters in the Houston area and they seemed to be pretty "nice folks" until I gave one of them a call. Well, lets just say that I haven’t participated in that QSO since then.
I haven't been here that long, but so far, everyone that I have had any contact with has been anything but cliquish. I really think we have a pretty good bunch here. I hope that you will find the same.
