Just made my first Sporadic-E contact on 10m FT8. It was wild. I'm told this time of year around 1700 is the time to sit on 10m FT8 and sure enough a bunch of Texas stations come blasting in! Cool! #hamradio
Lockdown = bands are jumping! Just nabbed Switzerland, Germany, and Poland in quick succession! All on 17m FT8 #hamradio
The MUF actually got high enough that I made a contact on 15 meters - to South America even! Idk if all hams know about this site but it tells you the highest frequency likely to produce ionospheric propagation at 3000km. Very helpful for seeing which bands are "open"
TBH I don't even know what she meant by that and she didn't explain
My 7 year old niece upon seeing the HTs and various receive equipment on my desk: "are you a YouTuber?" LOL #amateurradio
Made a blog post about pulling down images from the International Space Station:
