Alive and kickin’ – and preparing for next MW-season!
Yes! I’m still around! It’s still sort of summer up here (actually, with “summer” I mean “non-MW-season”), but we’re definetely getting closer to the next season of darkness – and DX:ing! A lot has happened since my last post here and, among other things, I’m now settled permanentely here in Vardø. Right now I’m preparing my antennas for the next season, and I will modify my phased HDLA-loops a bit – trying a pair of phased KAZ-loops, which I beleive will be able to fight local QRM a little bit better than my previous setup. As you can see in the picture, the loop wires are cut and as soon as the horses that now are populating the area where I’m planning to erect the antenna are gone – I will put the antenna up. A schematic diagram of the modified HDLA-loops will be published here within a few days.
During “pre-season”, I’m planning to update the blog two to three times per week, and when the season has started in september, my ambition is to update on an daily basis.
By the way: please note that I’m now using a new e-mail adress for DX-related correspondance:
