Summer 2014 K9ZW Shack Upgrades

Have a bunch of things in the works – swapping rotors for an AlphaSpid unit and a major home shack computer upgrade (details in a later post). Bought a copy of the latest Ham Radio Deluxe to try out.

For the remote station intended for Washington Island use, a SteppIR CrankIR antenna with 80m kit will be put in use, and have acquired a Flex Radio Systems Flex-6300. Initially I’ll push the old shack computer into service there, but have another box that I’d like to put into use there.

Slow evolution, but very positive improvements!

4th of July at W9EVT’s QTH

About 11-12 of those gathered for Greengate Farm’s 2014 4th of July picnic are licensed hams, the newest George and Susan’s daughter Amy KD9BTF who was licensed a few days ago after spending a few years teaching in Micronesia.

A great time was had by all, the the little ones participating in the children’s parade and then off to the fireworks.

Fabulous time with great group of people!
