VE9KK the world of CW 2023-02-02 20:02:00


 January is now in the rearview mirror and weather wise there was a mix of very warm weather (for January) of plus 12C, days with freezing rain and the occasional snowstorm of 37cm. I had a good month for radio, I was involved in some contests, WRTC competition more on that in another post. Then just some good all-around DX AP5A Barbados, S01SW Western Sahara, 5B4AMX Cyprus and CO8NMN Cuba. 

The space weather has been fantastic of late with some very surprising openings on 10m. Now into February by 2 days we have had cold weather. Last evening it was -25C and on Friday evening -30C with a wind chill of -47! I am staying indoors so bring on the DX!!

    Good Show Mike, That’s a lot of brass pounding ! 10 meters has been good to Europe around
    1400 UTC. I hope that 6 meters wakes up this Spring.

    Good morning Larry very nice to hear from you and thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I did learn CW way back when I got my ticket and then forgot about it. As time when on I picked the art up again and came to the conclusion that I spent a lot of time learning CW and I am not going to let it slip away.
