The computer that does my logging, SO2R, and voice/cw keying slowly came to a halt as Saturday afternoon progressed. It would work well for a few minutes and then it would eventually hang. Fortunately I managed to move the *.s3db N1MM file from the failing PC over to another so I could at least have computer logging. After a short while I realized that with so many years of having a computer do the mundane chores of logging, SO2R, band changing, mode control, and voice/cw keying, I couldn't go back to the old way very happily. So I enlisted the use of an old W7 machine I had kicking around and spent the next few hours getting N1MM+, VSPMgr, drivers, audio lines and levels, and cables set up and working. By early Sunday I was back! For the radio part, it seemed like a pretty typical good year for 6 meter E with the usual flat conditions on the other bands. With his super 1127/170 it seems that K1TO must have worked everybody - except me. Not sure how that happened. As always, a special thanks to the rovers for getting on from the road and the hilltops. Radios for all bands: 2 x K3/P3 plus various transverters. 6m: 800W, 6L HB Yagi 2m: 1 kW, FO12 222: 500W: FO16 432: 260W: FO25 1.2G: 15W: 45L LY all on a 90' tower See you in CQWW VHF next month!
