A day out operating from Bawdsey Radar. They have some new picnic tables there and one devoted to Morse Code.

With help from John, G0MGN, we put up a vertical 40m antenna and fed it with a Yeasu FT-897D.

And managed to work a few stations...

I was not happy with the log entry for G6VLD. The callsign and the fact that they were claiming to be a Marconi Museum in Cornwall did not add up and I spend all evening pondering it. If you turn G6VLD into dots and dashes you get:

    --. / -…. / …- / .-.. /  --.

If you take the same pattern but change the spacing you get:

    --. / -… / .…- / .-.. /  --.

GB4LD, which, according to QRZ is The Old Marconi Hut, Bass Point, The Lizard, Cornwall, England. So all the dits and dahs were correct, just the spacing was wrong!

Always nice to receive a QSL card. Not bad on 10 watts.

Due to the costs associated with Azure I stopped hosting the G0PJO website there. It has more moved closer to home and is written using the Microsoft Core technology. This will now be so much easier to update so... watch this space!
