Let’s see what I’ve managed to get done on my ham radio goal list from January
Get the shack up and running
- Build the SoftRock radio kits
One of them is built, still need to get around to building the RXTX kit.
Get the OpenBeacon W2MDW gave me up and running
OpenBeacon is reprogrammed and works. It’s just not on the air full time.
- Build my own OpenBeacon
I need to put in an order for one to build.
- Earn skill levels in CW
Progress is slow. I need to devote more time to this.
- Build Moxon antennas for 6 and 10m
- Experiment with making antennas
Antenna building has kind of taken a back seat to building up the workbench, improving my soldering skills and assembling things.
Try some digital modes
Got to play a little more digital during the ARRL RTTY Rookie Roundup over the summer. Waiting on some new transformers to finish off the sound card interface.
