For some time now me and my friend Bob have had a target to have an average at least on QSO per day over a month. I have tried and failed many time but the best I did was about 14 QSO’s in one month. This month I did it, I managed 34 contacts in June on the key, its still not up to Bob’s standards, I think he did 95 in April, but I’m happy. Theres no two ways about it, the more you do it, the easier it gets.
So far I have managed 22 countries on the key and I am really enjoying myself.
In other news, I bought a 350 watt Linnear Amplifier from a friend (Jon G7AZA). I have been that engrossed in morse I have only used it once to work a station on the Canary Islands, that is the only phone contact I’ve had on HF this month.
I had a blast from the past as well this month, my mothers sister (well one of them) contacted me, I remember going to her house in the sixties as she lived in South London, but that’s about it. I was torn as my instinct was to pass the time of day and then leave it at that, it’s difficult because she is in her 70’s and I would feel bad.
That’ll do for now.
