Will have to do that if I get the chance, but I will "do the needful" in the appropriate room to make sure someone is home.  Also I prefer to not come unannounced so as not get killed by laser toting killer robots that are guarding the snow blower(s).

A prostitute provided at no charge by the CIA as an incentive to keep further leaks of confidential information from happening?

Well, the bands cannot always be hot.
Nothing at all 'interesting' today.
Must be the weather.... ;)

Sure is quiet around here.
Reminds me of 20 meters earlier today. ;)

Rain here right now.
Strong winds as well.


In fact, the last time I saw wind like this was back in NJ during any one of many hurricanes.

Antennas, so far, holding just fine.

And, hopefully, it will stay that way.

Great, but what's the current status of SkyK2NE, in geostationary orbit over the mountain?

Actually, we are too busy planning for K2NE/Lunar for the moon base in 2017 just in time for the January VHF Sweepstakes!! ;)

When I was in NJ, working the Canary Islands on 20m or 15m was never a big deal.

Out here it's about 6,000 miles, so it was just a bit exciting to work EA8OM in the Canary Islands... on 40 meters. Through a pile-up even.

I love my Mountain!!

Subject: Straight Key Night

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Remember - there's something brewing for New Year's Eve...

Yes, it's almost Straight Key Night!!

If you need the specifics (times, etc.) go to www.arrl.org where you'll find everything you need to know.

It's a bit of a contest, but more of a gathering. A time to remember when things were simpler and code speeds were limited by what you could do with that old straight key.

No paddles; no "bugs" or keyers.

Just that simple wrist-breaking straight key.

It will remind you why it's called "pounding the brass!"

Join in. It's fun!!

We will be active here on the Mountain on Monday morning 29 Dec around 8AM PST (1600 Z) on 10m/20m depending on band conditions.

Look for us on USB (28.400 Mhz and/or 14.210 Mhz, all "+/-").

Little bit late for me to get things together vince-q, but I will rummage through the bins to see if I can find the mike for my 10m rig going forward for a future possible qso meet on air.

Depending on band conditions, and (of course) your location, it should be a snap. We've gotten S9+ reports from some of the oddest places (Japan, Israel, Maine, and Brazil all within 15 minutes!).

Heck, 10m is *almost* as much fun as six meters!

Just let me know. Monday and Tuesday mornings (Pacific time) are best.

I know what a keyer is, but what's a paddle?

My FT-817ND package came with a nice little magmount paddle. I thought about re-eBaying it, but I figure there's a remote chance I will someday learn Morse.

Wow!!

That's all I can say about what happened here on the Mountain around noon today - on six meters.

Wow!!

HAWAII !!!!!!!!!!

Two of them:
WH6XM on sideband. Very nice contact. And then...
KH6HI on CW. Again, very nice contact.

The only thing puzzling me is whether it was F2 (remember, big solar flare thing in progress), or tropo-ducting.

I'm strongly leaning toward F2, but that ducting thing is still a possibility.

But... ANY day you work Hawaii on six meters is a good day!
