2012 Challenge–QSO a day update
I’m a few days late in getting this posted. I wanted to provide a quick update on the progress of my 2012 challenge. As I blogged about recently, I set my 2012 challenge to be a QSO a day throughout the year. I’m happy to report I successfully closed out the month of January with a QSO logged each day for a total of 205 logged QSO’s total for the month.
The breakdown is as follows:
I’m hoping as the year progresses to operate more SSB and also PSK. But with over 540 JT65 Q’s logged since I learned of this mode, I’m still having a lot of fun with JT65.
I’ve also recently given my main KDØBIK.com website a new look by using a WordPress theme install. While I’m keeping this blog site, as well as my SOTA blog and the Practical Amateur Radio Podcast websites all separate, the clean look of the WordPress theme just better ties everything together. Also, it allows me to essentially update the site from just about anywhere and even when on my iPad.
Finally, another plug for my podcast. I did release episode 51 back in late January. As I’ve done the past several years, the January episode is devoted to amateur radio related New Year’s resolutions. I provided several ideas in an attempt to help motivate and inspire. While we are almost to the half-way point in February, in my opinion it is never too late to set a goal. Especially if that goal allows you to have fun in the hobby of amateur radio.
Until next time,

I respect your ambition for the 1 QSO per day. Hopefully I’ll get there some day.. I’ve not been on the air in close to nine months. And no, one contest and 365 Q’s doesn’t count! :O)
