Those in isolation,may need help etc.


OK, anyone lives local to me needs anything, let me know I will do my best to help.

(Telford area)

And we as radio enthusiasts can speak with those over the radio that are tied to their homes. Don't let anyone feel lonely. If you have a radio, lets use it!

Now is the time to switch on and make some contacts!

Lets get busy talking

I have been using this time to #LearnToCode and get my CW skills up to speed

Made a few contacts on 40m a little while ago. They would have looked up my call and seen I was unlicensed at the time. Soreted now, but I like the juxtoposition of "He is unclicenced :-( but he was using code :-) but he is unlicenced :-( but he was using morse....on a 101B with a homebrew antenna :-)"

Some hams are passive aggressive rule follower soft authoritarians. Fortunately, many are not

Oh, so that was YOU! :P Just kidding. I've come across a couple callsigns that weren't real before. I don't mind at all - I enjoyed the chat emoticon Maybe one of them WAS you. Good on you for getting your CW up to speed and getting a real callsign.

If you've not tried it, https://lcwo.net/ is great for improving your speed once you've got past the initial hurdle of just getting the alphabet and numbers down.

What a long strange trip it's been.
