Excellent site, I always check for updates and keep an eye on your blog too. You are doing a great job despite your antenna restrictions. Although I only have a small garden here I am lucky enough to have been able to get a couple of antennas outdoors. Keep up the good work

Managed my first digimode W6 on Thursday: KJ6P in Cutler, California on BPSK31, just before sunset on 20m. Running 20W and a trap vertical. No east coast W's heard at the time. Also working South America about an hour before sunrise on 40m BPSK31; XE, HI, CO and YV. No G4ILO in the digimode log though!

Ciao Julian, incredible site! Lots to read, really marvellous. Congratulations!. Could you compare RigExpert AA200/500 and MFJ 269.. Which one is the best analyzer compared to price and ease to use? 73s!!

First of all my compliments for all your software! Well done !!!
I just have a question about WebProp. I am writing now a small software for DXcluster spot receiver, and in the mean time I would like to insert propagations data display, like you do in Webprop.
- what data should I collect ?
- What type of calculations do I have to made to obtain propagation's forecast ?
- or, where to find some simple infos ?
Many thanks and 73' de Pietro

Nicely done web site.
I'm a casual reader of the Elecraft reflector (as my only radio is a Drake TR4C) and I'd like to say the current state of discord there is unfortunate. I've appreciated your frank and informative posts on the reflector as well as the eHam.net review.
Best wishes to you,

Hi, Julian. I am really learning a bit about some exciting trends in ham radio, through your great website and blog. Thanks!!
I returned to ham radio after a 15 year absence, and I share many of your interest: stealth radio (for aesthetic reasons), QRP, and PICs. Last year, I built a Small Wonder Labs 40M rig, and I am operating exclusively CW.
However, your great site is educating me on upgraded rigs and operating in other modes.
thanks again, and I will be a regular now!!

Hi om. I like your WebProp information, and at present I use n0nbh.com's box on the local ham page I edit. I have communicated my wishes with him, with little result, WHAT I WANT is your webprop box withOUT the propagation predictions, I would rather just give the facts. not give a word like POOR, and discourage a person, I would rather they switch on the radio and listen ! just because the numbers indicate Poor, doesn't mean thats 100% the case.
SO I wonder if you would like to make a small vertical box with just the numbers. no forecast... ???
anyway, enjoyed looking around your page .. 73 john

Hallo Julian. May I say how much I enjoy your web site. Its one of my regular visits when I do my e-mails in the morning. I am particularly interested in the loop aerial as I too am not in a very good radio site (The Meon valley) and am working towards going portable, in between interruptions like loading the dishwasher. Keep up the good work

Hi Julian, Just came across you last night after seeing your call pop up on google APRS. Live in St Bees and have just returned to radio after 20 years and wow things have 'moved on'. Have a poor location for the higher frequencies but having fun with APRS via ISS etc. Just set up now for having a go at other satellites. Just passed near you QTH this am as was looking for a tripod at the Cockermouth car boot sale. Hope to have a crack sometime .

I enjoyed your website very much because I'm also a stealth operator. My wife has MS and I suspect that we'll end up in assisted living. I also operate qrp w/ antennas in my crawlspace and they seem to perform pretty well. I generally use ssb and psk31, but I am re-training myself to use cw. 73's

Read your stealth antenna entry and your thoughts on the MP-1 Super Antenna. Live in a New York apartment building with no way to install anything outside the apartment. I use an Super Antenna inside the apartment with a counterpoise cut quarter-wave for 20 meters hanging out a window. With this set-up at 100 watts, have worked 40 countries and 30 U.S. states.
My concern is the RF risk. Keep the antenna in a room with fairly thick walls with no one within 20 feet of the antenna when in use. Any thoughts on how safe this is?
Thanks and keep up the great work.

Hi- Found your site from the August Radcom after reading the article on propagation. The WSPR project seems very interesting and already having my rig connected to my computer for the various digital modes, I'm going to give it a try. Your article about Linux is very appropriate. I've been trying out various distros, but I've come to the same conclusion as yourself. I was using Ubuntu at the end which is very stable for general work including web browsing, but useless for ham radio. Indeed some peripherals like scanners are difficult to get to work. Like yourself, I would dearly like to get rid of the Microsoft OS but I have come to the conclusion that we are stuck with it.I wonder what Google Chrome OS would be like??

Just found your site on Google while search "stealth antennas". Great site and I agree wholeheartedly with your approach. I see so much whining on the internet from hams who can't have a tower due to CCR's. So what! I have a blast with the hobby using a handful of dipoles mounted very low to the ground. How about a 40 meter dipole that's stapled to a six foot fence? Works like a champ!!! 73 Wade

Hello Julian - I just happened by your website (don't remember how) and I am presenty confined to the same restrictions as you.I use the Internet Remote Base system around the world whereby I use other stations with my computer. I had to laugh about comments you have received from some saying they would never operate if they had your restrictions. I have had the same reaction a few times. My answer is I don't have to climb trees or towers, worry about rfi or have all the necessary equipment any longer and I can take my laptop in any room in the house or on out of town on holidays and still operate my ham radio. I especially enjoy using a European station and having many enjoyable hours rag chewing with you folks over there any time I wish. I have been a ham since 1953 and these are the best years in the hobby for me. Happy meeting you -Grant
