We're now four months into 2011. Wow, time flies by fast!
Looking back on my last post for 2010 and looking at my Ham Radio resolutions, I see that I have only really kept one so far. I have been on the air more so far this year. In fact, my QSO tally is about 20% higher than it was at this same point, last year.
The other resolutions can't really be touched until warmer weather returns and I can get more done outside. But I did take care of one thing that didn't even make the resolution list and that was putting up the new wire.
Hopefully during the summer months, I will get more radials down for the HF9V and I will get that 160 Meter vertical built. The Butternut continues to amaze me as to how good a performer it is. Since I removed it from the coax switch and put it directly on the K2 as "Antenna 2", it's been my mainstay.
Tomorrow and Sunday, I hope to spend time in the QRP-ARCI Spring QSO Party. Meeting old acquaintances and perhaps making new friends. Keep your ears peeled for #4488 (that would be me!).
