CQ from FN42 New Hampshire

We made it! Winter welcomed us back with plenty of snow and cold weather, brrr.... but all is OK now that spring has arrived. The place is green again and hopefully the lake will be warm enough for a swim soon. I did swap out the offset fed dipole for a ZS6BKW version of a G5RV. Seems to work fine 80 - 6 but not so good on 160 as the OFD. The old reliable Kenwood TS-520D was replaced with anElecraft K3 / P3 I also have a classic Kenwood TS-520S station (thanks Song!) running.

August 2013

The last half of 2013 brought big changes! We packed up amd moved from San Jose, California back east to Kingston, New Hampshire.

Looking out over Kingston Lake

After lots of unpacking and rearranging radio operations resumed in September. The Kenwood TS-570D does most of the duty on JT65, JT9 and SSB while the Elecraft K2 and other QRP radios are used for CW. Only one antenna up so far an 80 meter offset fed dipole up about 45 feet. The tower will sit and wait until spring.
