Weekly update

It has been a good week on 6 meters, worked several new grids.

Researching equipment needed to allow more compter control of my station from my bed operating position.

Found a fellow ham who has a computer control board which costs 400.00 and will allo computer control of my NCS Multiswitcher and amplifier.
If you can help by donating toward the purchase of this equipment.

N8LP builds the control board and several other pieces of equipment.

Gosh where is the year gone? I have had fun operating the 6 meter openings in recent weeks. The 4 ele Steppir does reall well on all band, however it is not doing well on 6 meter recieve.

I am spending more time at my bed operating position each day. What a great hobby that allows me to communicate from my be making friends.

If you read my blog I would like to hear from you and work you.

I am trying to collect Amateur Radio License Plates if you have one laying around.

Have a great week, make lots of contacts.
