I look forward to my first since getting back into after 25 years. I will operate 1D from my QTH, an apartment in Philadelphia running QRP into a magnetic loop sitting by my bedroom window.

Happy Day! We've made it half way through the winter.

February 2 also has a special meaning for me, because I started my dial-up bulletin board system on February 2, 1991.

Does anyone know about automatic magnetic loop antenna controllers? They may hold the key to fulfilling my dream of getting back on HF from within my city apartment.

Merry Christmas! Last night I watched It's a Wonderful Life, described for the blind by George H.W. Bush! Of course I went into full mode immediately. "Not gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent."
