Top Five K0NR Blog Posts for 2020

Closing out 2020, here are the top five blog posts at during the year. Some people may see this as a lazy way of creating one more blog post for the year without much work. This is definitely true. I hope you enjoy it anyway.

Leading the list is this blog post…a perennial favorite that seems to make the top five each year.

Getting Started on 2m SSB

This is another popular article that explains some of the details behind the 2-meter band plan. This particular article is tuned for Colorado but there it also provides a link to an article that covers the topic for the USA.

Choose Your 2m Frequency Wisely

New on the blog this year,  I wrote this article about the Yaesu FT-4XR handheld transceiver. Spoiler Alert: Buy this one instead of the Baofeng.

What About the Yaesu FT-4XR?

Coming from nowhere, this article talks about an alternative firmware package for the popular Tytera MD-380 transceiver. I don’t know why this is getting so many hits but it might just be people searching for the TyMD380toolz, which seems to have disappeared.

The fifth-place post is one of my personal favorites that talks about proper kerchunking of repeaters. It even introduced a new Q-signal for kerchunking, although I must admit it may not be catching on.

Proper Kerchunking

Editor’s Choice

I am going to add one more post to this list. No extra charge. This one announced that Joyce/K0JJW achieved Mountain Goat status in the Summits On The Air program. You Go, Grrrrl.
