My name is Alex, I am dumb (occasionally)

By | May 22, 2014

May normally brings a bit of Es fun for me in sunny St Bees. I duly put up the 6m antenna (which annoys the xyl). Tuned into 50.150 and started listening about. Nowt.

I left it a few days and went back when I knew there was Es. Nothing heard…strange.

Carried on listening. Considered starting a white noise listening club.

This evening I checked all the cables

I had wired up a co-ax patch lead…to thin air.

I’ll be contacting Ofcom to hand my license back in and accepting the dunces cap for however long it takes me to stop being so dumb! My sincerest apologies to one and all .

    Whoops! Ah well, hands up any true radio amateur who hasn’t done anything like that? Mind you I can think of a couple of almighty,self-opinionated beings who post on the RSGB tech group who would probably claim to be that much holier than thee and me 🙂

      Today, I have been slightly less ashamed! Only slightly
