Where have I been?

It has been an unusually long time since my last post. Sometimes other events take priority and that has been the case over the past couple months as my older daughter is finishing up her last year of high school and getting set for college. I’ve had a few trips, some other commitments, and the weekends fly on by.

I have done a small amount of operating, most recently last weekend in the New England QSO Party with about 90 mins of SSB activity on 40m working.

I’ve also assumed the Treasurer responsibilities for my local radio club as the previous Treasurer is moving away from the area. I needed to take turnover of documents, banking accounts, etc. I also gave a refresher demo on N1MM logging program to the club at our last meeting as we are switching from CT to N1MM.

I did volunteer again to assist with CQ SSB paper log entry for those submitting their log on paper. I enjoy doing it so it certainly is no bother to help out.

I have listened a couple of times for the Yemen DXpedition but so far no luck. Maybe I should take a day off from work and I might have a better shot at getting them in the log.

One thought on “Where have I been?

  1. I get in those ruts where I don’t write anything for a while, and it’s always hard to get started again. (In fact, I’m in the middle of one of those ruts right now.)

    7O6T has been strong and pretty easy to work on 20m in the early evenings from here on both phone and cw, and you should be able to get them mid to late afternoon on 17m as well. I managed to get them on 15 CW at around 21:00 GMT, but I’ve been trying for quite a while to get a phone contact there and haven’t been able to get through so far. I’m just glad to have at least one contact with this ultra-rare entity.
