We are in the new QTH!!

The new station slowly being setup
Friday was moving day and I sure did find out I am not as young as I used to be! While at the old place we made a huge effort (so we thought) to reduce what we had as we were moving into a condo and one that was very much smaller than our home. Once moved in it was a SEA of boxes, again we had more "stuff" than room. Up to this point Julie has been working very hard to settle the Kitchen into place. Last night she completed that job! Im sorting boxes, getting the ham gear somewhat placed in the desk (setting it up will be a job for next week). We are on the 6th floor here with south and east
Boxes slowly being dealt with
exposure. I am just itching to get on the radio and either WSPR my signal out or use the KX3 and call CQ and see how the Reverse Beacon spots me. At this point my antenna will be the Alexloop placed in front of our bay window and I will be maxing out at 5 watts or less.

  1. Hey Mike, I guess that settling everything will requre some time but you'll made it. All those boxes will disappear sooner or later :) Hope we'll manage to make a contact once you'll be QRV
    Cheers from the older part of the pond :)

    1. Good morning to you John, it sure does feel great to have this spare time in the mornings. At this time I would had been on the road but instead I am sitting with a coffee and checking blogs on the net. It's now time to get things settled in and that will happen this week.
