Is winter over yet?

December seems a long time ago. I had a different job and radio was still up there on the ‘things I do when I’m not at work’ list. Since then I haven’t stopped at my new job, its nice to be busy but its really interferring with my radio stuff! The cycle race I marshalled at last May (with my trusty Yaesu VX8-GE) has me as an entrant and my MSF reciver project has yet to be turned into a PCB.

its not looking good


Winter is almost over. I’m getting out on the bike in the mornings and evening going to and from work, which means, the evenings are free(er), which means I’ve uploaded my MSF receiver to and there is progress with getting a PCB made up, it’s almost warm enough to think about re-cabling the minor antenna farm. The salty air is a continual problem with my antennas and it may be time to go ‘full stealth’ the aluminium ( note correct spelling ;-) ).

All this points me in the direction of thinking about radio. If I’ve got time to think about it then I’m not far of ‘doing’ it. Very positive steps. Spring is on its way
