It has been quite a while ago, since I last made any progress reports on gpredict. To tell you the truth, there I took a break for a few weaks, but I have been coding like hell during the last two weeks.
99.5% of the people who built at least one K1 enjoyed doing so and I am no exception. This article summarizes my K1 building experience hoping that other prospective K1 builderswill find it useful.
Doing some last minute QSO with the K1 before I head back to CPH. It was a rather joyful weekend with good test conditions of the K1. When the K1 gets back to the lab I’ll have following points on my TODO list:
Today I made some more QSOs using the K1. Here are a few examples:
At 09:05 UTC I called EA6NB, Jim, on 10.108 MHz. He returned my call with 549, but then he lost me. The band was indeed strange with a lots of QSB.
My K1 had a rather turbulent start in its career, I must admit. Somehow I managed to blow the final twice before it actually got on the air. Shame on me!
It’s quite late and I really should have gone to bed but I simply couldn’t resist to turning on the K1.
