I have tried to update the forum software but will need to update my database server first. Since I have clients on that machine, I can't do so without risking major outages, so I will have to wait for the appropriate time... I reverted to the previous version of the software. Hopefully there won't be any glitches. Let me know if you notice anything weird. My avatar had disappeared but I reuploaded it. You might have to do the same.

Now the YouTube channel is on Patreon:

Sorry, I haven't posted much here lately but the YouTube channel takes a lot of my time ???

Future projects include finishing boxing up the MFT-40 and QCX, as well as a few improvements to my Soda-Pop. I have a couple ideas for antenna builds and evaluations. What is needed IMHO are more operating videos. Another couple months and the weather should improve...

Hello. I never have... Wondering about its utility in a prepping context...

Have you tried the 160m band? What is your experience? What do you think about it?
