K2 Project Started

Work has been really, really busy and I have just a little amount of time to dedicate to radio activities. But at least, I started the K2 project and did some soldering of the control board. There are not many pictures to share yet as I only have been able to solder a few components. I have added some new links related to building the K2 and these are really helpful. You can read my K2 page for a detailed update on the project.

Worldwide DX Contest and K2 Project

Two weeks ago or thereabouts was the worldwide DX contest - 2/19 and 2/20. I was able to add 30 new DX entities while working 82 DX stations.

I got Hawaii twice. Once was on 40m QRP and the other time was on 15m QRO.

I have not had too much HF operation of late. I have not even started building the K2. I built a work table on which to build the K2 on. The table is finished and now it is just the time commitment that is necessary.
