Closing out 2021, here are the top five blog posts at k0nr.com 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:
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 it also provides a link to an article that covers the topic for the USA.

Once again, coming in at fifth place 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.
Just for good measure, I am including one more post that I think is notable. I wrote this one after looking around the web for a good explanation of what is a valid QSO? I never did find a good, up-to-date definition of a QSO, so I wrote one. This one may turn out to be an evergreen article but so far it has not gotten a lot of hits.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
