I just submitted my application for DXCC via LoTW. This has been an achievement I have fantasized for my entire time I have been licensed. Thanks to RZ0AF Andrei I submitted my application today.
(Happy Spring, by the way) Used my new awesome AADE L/C meter IIB to match a bunch of .1μF caps to within ±.0.5% and stuffed the board a little. I was stealing time away from work so I did not forge through…as much as I was tempted. So far this has been a thoroughly enjoyable kit-building experience.
When I learned that Arizona QRP Club AZ ScQRPions released a new QRP Transceiver kit designed by N7VE (Dan Tayloe) I placed my order without even thinking twice. N7VE pushes the performance envelope of HF design to new levels (think the famous Tayloe Detector) and this little transceiver kit is no exception.
Deep down inside, I am simply a nerd. And of all of the classifications, I probably belong to the nerdiest class of all: Radio Amateur. I am not ashamed of my “status,” I revel in it, in fact. I hope to produce more evidence as such in the coming weeks.
