As a departure from my normal VHF contesting, last year I had some friends come over to do the November Sweepstakes CT.

We did it a bit like field day with lot's of food & drink and no pressure.   Our goal was to get a clean sweep and have some fun!  The results were better than anyone could have anticipated as we came in first in Ontario South and second in Canada.

Thanks friends!




Bayfield to Sarnia in 6.5 hours 30+ knots of wind, and my wife is is still laughing at me, said I look like Bozo....




Holy crap, now officially on LoTW, what an ordeal.

But its over now.

So, please don't ask for any of that paper stuff.

Please read the details section, I don't have any QSL cards.

Unfortunately the bug to wind ratio was way off, but we still had fun...

Check out RemoteHams @ http://beta.remotehams.com/



This is the new RemoteHams Interface from Brandon KG6YPI
I got one of the first ten prototypes and stuck it in a plastic enclosure I had laying around, it was twice as big as it needed to be so I added a brass weight to keep it from moving around.
This is a USB interface with its own sound card for the headphones and a 8 pin MIC plug with PTT.
The other 2 - 1/8 inch plugs are for a Keyer and paddle.
There is also an extra com. port so you can link to your logging program and it will get the band, mode and frequency info automatically, just like at home!

American Integrity heading North up Lake Huron @ sunset past our discharge destined for Silver Bay, Minnesota to pick up a load of Taconite. That is Port Huron, MI in the background







My youngest son Byron, a future HAM came over today to pick up a 40 foot crank-up, tilt over tower,

We had fun loading it on a trailer to get over to Michigan.

American customs just did not know what to think of it!







& remember Best 73's = Best Best Regards's's

& if "5 by 9" is perfect copy, strongest signal , is "59 + 20dB" 20 dB stronger than strongest?
