It's an ironclad rule that anytime I log a new DXCC entity, they won't use logbook of the world. Inevitably I have to work another station in that entity to get credit. #hamradio
Ahhh!!! Worked all states! Finally managed to get Hawaii. Thanks to K9FD who had a nice signal on 17 meters and managed to pull my low power signal out of the muck! #hamradio

This combined with ssg5 all glued with a makefile is *much* better.
Ended up with 55 contacts for field day. Entry submitted and logs uploaded to lotw! All digimodes between FT8/4 and PSK31 #hamradio
Saw the reddit thread about public addresses in #hamradio. I understand the concerns, but some information should really remain public. Maybe email, state, and county. Otherwise, say I contact K1RZ. Do I have to wait for confirmation in Logbook of the World to realize he's not actually in 1-land but is in fact in MD?
Wild propagation conditions on the east coast today. 10 meters was open for a while and I actually made a handful of contacts on 12m to the northeast! #hamradio
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
code, music, sports, #hamradio
