Another Weekend Another Wind

This weekend I have taken part in the RUWW PSK CONTEST taking part with my beam
 and tower down again at only 13ft due to high wind. After making a moderate 244 contacts
I have submitted my logbook to the contest manager to see how I do. 
Also guess what when the contest had finished the Sunday was wind free 
typical of the British weather. I have also uploaded my logbook to ultimate epc and I am now 45th in the uk using the psk award program

New Year New Shack For 2E0IJK

A new year a new shack for 2E0IJK. After aquiring more radio equipment it was time to make more space in the shack. After a trip to my local B&Q for a worktop after taking some measurements, the new shack construction was underway. The racking went up with no hassle at all and after a few measurements and cuts to the worktop it slotted straight into position. Now the most important bit deciding where to put all the equipment, of course making sure all the coax and control cables were long enough to reach each radio or atu unit. The reason of constructing a new shack was my recent purchase of the Kenwood TS-830 so it took pride of place as you walk into the shack along with my faithfull Icom 756 proiii. Above is a picture of the finished shack and I look forward to working some new contacts as the year progresses from it.
