Happy New Year!!

Ok, lets have a total check:


 Admittedly there is a mistake. 

40m (and the total) should be one less as I later discovered that the Papua New Guinea was a mistake and I haven't worked out how to take it off clublog without wiping the whole thing and I'm paranoid about that!!

Last night I got a new US state (Idaho) which brings me to only Alaska, Kansas, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota & Wyoming to get.

This year I've put up a long wire and a windom, which both came down in the storm last week. I haven't had a chance to get them back up again so I'm back to the old faithful G5RV jr.  on 20m it is EXCELLENT so I'm not complaining,  I did get the wire to make a horizontal loop but now that I've done the calculations, my garden isn't big enough to make an 80m loop so I'll save the wire for some other project that I likely won't finish!!

Plans for 2014?

get the windom and long wire back in action, get a few more of those missing US states and improve my CW listening.

I've used PSK31 & RTTY, as well as CW and SSB.  maybe a few new modes..... AM on HF?  some other digimodes?  who knows?

Happy new year!!
