My installed software handshakes with their servers downloading their latest updates then DXLAB Suite is opened for the #hamr weekend. The machines seek out eQSL and LoTW while I observe the latest harvest report generated by my favorite logging program. I refill my Dashtoons' coffee cup before reading the latest in #hamr news from CQ Contest Digest, the Northern California Contest Club reflector, to DX World and DX Coffee.
Today, the Beach Boys Amateur Radio Club, gathered together at a Five Cities donut shop exchanging the latest QST. I enjoyed an apple fritter and a little less coffee while chatting with the boys. We left after a round to help QDH salvage a Mosley TA-33 tri-band antenna, a rotor, and tower.
The antenna appeared to be in good shape other than normal corrosion at the hardware.
I'm currently in the software preparing for my extra class examination scheduled for later this month. My mentor pointed out the next level in RadioSport is the lower 25 kilocycles. I have held general class privileges for three decades and passing the extra may bring me one step closer to the Box as well. Also, I want to thank Dan, KB6NU for his blog postings that cover extra class test questions.
