Well, it has been a while since I last wrote in this blog...but not a lot has been happening. My bride had a little accident on the first of May, took a nasty fall, and broke her femur, so I have been rather busy tending to her as she convaleces. She's been coming a long rather well, but the healing of such a large bone is a slow process, even with all of the advanced hardware she now possesses...
I am now down to only one QSL from WAS...Alabama is my last need. I guess I should've taken advantage of the recent ALQP, but just didn't have the time. I only operate sparingly of late, so I didn't manage to jump into that one to nail down my last needed QSL. I KNOW there a several stations in here from AL, can't we make a sked and help me get this one out of the way? Please?
Have been working some nice DX lately - especially since I became more active on CW. Managed to work E4X, and have also added several other new countries to my "worked" list, ahinch is now up to 101 worked, with 63 confirmed. Now if those bureau cards will ever get here...thinking about trying out Global QSL...I figure for about 12 bucks for the first 100 cards, it isn't all that expensive to test out.
Also have started playing around with some RTTY just for a change of pace...worked several Carribean stations so far, plus worked JY4CI in Jordan! So, apparently, there's some more fun to be had with one of the OLD digital modes! Although it isn't as robust as PSK, it still works, and is gatting more entries into my log.
Well, that's about all there is to report for now. 73 from beautiful, historic Hampton, VA - America's oldest continuously English-speaking city (Estab. 1601).
