Tag Archives: With Varying Frequency

Hence the Hiatus (Oct-Dec 2013)

A kind email from Jeff KE9V was the latest asking why no posts to “With Varying Frequency” for an unusually long period of time.

Personal & Professional travel, an unexpected need to step-up to fill an important Volunteer Leadership position when help became needed, and a very busy work period had cut down uncommitted time to where triaging had to happen. Even my operating time has been cut to an hour or two here & there chasing DX as I have been AWOL from my usual 160m net for months.

All good things, these distractions and extra tasks, and there is light at the end of the tunnel. Working on two series pieces that should debut in a few weeks.

As always I am good at the email address at my QRZ.com page and 73

With Varying Frequency – past 1200 Posts!

I missed marking the occassion, as a few posts ago this blog passed 1200 entries.

Very much thanking all readers for hanging in with me.

I’m also looking for a volunteer(s) to “data mine” the entries for some sort of eBook to share.

Afraid we’re likely to have no fame or fortune for the effort, but I know we can help a lot of starting (and not so new) radio amateurs with a better format for the educational/sharing entries in some other format.

Please post a comment or email me (I’m good at QRZ) if you are interested in sharing the byline!

Post Number 900 to With Varying Frequency – Amateur Radio Ponderings

It is a sort of nonsense milestone, but in the fashion that WordPress counts Blog Posts, this is my 900th update to With Varying Frequency – Amateur Radio Ponderings.

For the most part my original project goals are continuing, a chance to share what others have been kind enough to teach me about Amateur Radio and gather those lessons in one spot.

I’m comfortable with the formula and the hundreds of people who read With Varying Frequency daily appear to also be OK with things, on a good day perhaps a thousand people have a read.  I thank them all.

Looking forward, I am hoping to have more guest posts and to slowly move select items of content to a static webpage format where new amateur radio enthusiasts can more quickly find them.

I’m not happy with the “Tag Cloud” implementation of the blog, nor the blog diary-pages format, and will favor a more conventional keyword index & organization in developing the static articles.

I very much hope that at least a few potential hams and new hams have in some small way been helped by something in what I have written over these 900 posts.
