Longtime Mayor of NYC Ed Koch used to ask that of the public/media all the time during his tenure. At the start of the year, I made a ‘To Do List’ regarding things I wanted to accomplish in amateur radio this year. We’re at the halfway point of 2012, so let’s see how I’m doing….
QRP DXCC<HUZZAH!> Ditch the paper log for a digital one<Yup> More portable/outdoor operation<Easily surpassed last year’s efforts>
- Organize my (corner of the basement) shack <May never happen>
- Get comfortable with & operate more digital modes <In Process>
- Build & experiment with more antenna designs <2m Moxon done, Sat ANT in process, 10,15,20m top-loaded vertical 50% done, 6m moxon later>
First SOTA activation<Activated one of the few unactivated peaks in NJ>
- First Satellite Contact <Building Homebrew Diplexer & Arrow ANT now>
So, all in all, I’m pretty happy with my progress, with half a year left.
