First five days of HF operation

I’ve been able to get down to my radio station a few nights since that first contact.

You can do a lot with 20 watts and a wire

I do a lot of listening and learning. But I do try to make at least one contact per session.

The map above was made by exporting my logs from and then I used the ADIF to Map tool.

Here is my logbook

Most of my contacts were made over 40 meters. I’m definitely becoming more comfortable with the radio and learning how to operate it better.
