WB4IUY's Random Blog

I've been in Amateur Radio since 1974, and still find new and interesting things to do. I like to build, restore, and operate on the air. This is a blog of various info about my Ham Radio operations and activities, projects, and opinions. Visit www.WB4IUY.net for the lowdown at WB4IUY.

IARU Contest Running this weekend!

The IARU Contest is running this weekend. DX will abound and is easily found... I just worked B4HQ in China on 14.195 from here in IARU zone 08 (Youngsville NC)! Fire up the rig and get on the air. See you on the bands!
