I need to take the "Big Dog" out more often. It handles the bands so smoothly into an using the 49:1 transformer and easy sending using the American Morse Equipment

I haven't used Walt's 100 Watt 49:1 transformer in awhile. Going to take out for a ride today to see how it handles this morning's band conditions.

Rough day for most activators no matter the band. Even tough for operators. Still nice to enjoy a beautiful day.

And 20m went KAPUT. I've succumbed to Mother Nature's #geomagneticstorm. Running 20m #WSPR simultaneously with #FT8 to see what pans out on this #parksontheair #pota activation. #amateurradio #hamradio #solarcycle25 #spaceweather

It's Working. Only one 20m but 20m saved the day. Difficult syncing but so far my tools are working against the BIG BAD

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Not me! These are the tools I'm throwing at the BIG BAD for this morning's activation. A for , for & for . EXPERIMENTATION is the foundation on which was built.

Having a blast with some action today. Lots of activity across both sides of the ocean. Did someone say something about a ?

NOAA SWPC video of the solar flare that spawned CMEs... Expected to cause some great aurora activity, potential to also cause other mischief (mostly in space/high latitudes). Though it will probably wipe out ham radio too this weekend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dr2BIlDGDk

@ai6yr Yeah, so much for . I may try a limited activation nearby just for giggles, willing to take the L if I can't get 10, but we'll see.

Heading out for some early morning #pota #parksontheair fun. Did I read something about a Severe Geomagnetic Storm Watch? ☹️ #solarcycle25 #geomagneticstorm #solarflares #AmateurRado #hamradio

May the 4th was with me. The FORCE was strong with this one as the bands were awful again as expected with approaching storms. Hot, muggy and steamy weather on Kentucky Derby Day in Louisville, KY.

@N4JAW The bands were weird today. Some strong signals and good RBN spots, but a lot of 1 dB and 3 dB spots, too. Took me two hours to make 20 contacts. I saw you spotted on 40m, and was going to QSY and try to work you, but the “last seen” time was 20 minutes or so, and you had probably quit by then.
