Hi Jim
Give us old codgers a break.... ....😎 HNY to you and your family see you on the bands in the new year.

Worked Ian G3GIR on 630m tonight so live is bubbling to the surface...... hee

Stop moaning!!  J


With best regards



Hello Pete,

Good to hear you today, especially on MF

Ian and I were generating some activity and even had a CW QSO on LF !!

'Winter Sports' is a complete rub out here alas with wall to wall QRM from TB to 30m

In desperation I called my head off on 20m and despite getting some good spots on the reverse beacon network no one called me.

I tried a similar trick last night on 160m and eventually managed one QSO - with Ian !

I'm afraid the days of QRP CW seem numbered and unless the RSGB etc. seriously get to grips with the severe QRM problem ops will just either pack it in or go QRO.


I wanted to test all my HB gear but have fallen short.

At present I've got a most unusual set up for WSPRing on 30m (never done that):-

I have a free running 10.1 MHz VFO locked to my divide by 10 PLL itself driven by the Chinese sig gen (at 1.0138 MHz)

The locked output then feeds my 'universal QRP DSB WSPR TX' hopefully giving about 0.1W RF

No one's spotted me yet but 30m is jam packed so I may just be getting squashed.

I look forward to seeing my signals on your grabber again - most useful that!


Have a pleasant evening and I shall be in the shack for most of it.

Hi Chris G3XIZ HNY


Thanks for coming back to my CQ on CW on 630m today. It goes to show there is human life on the band.


I am working up yet another 136 rig hope to get some use out of  this one in 2017.


The FMT 472 grabber goes off tomorrow night. I will dump the images onto disc as a permanent testimony to how little human operation occurs over a three week period around here.
