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.

Russian DX Contest...anybody, anywhere!


The Russian DX Contest is running this weekend. The neat thing about this contest is, you can work anyone, anywhere...not just Russian stations. So, it makes the bands a bit more lively and enjoyable. I'm up at 12:45am playing around on 20m, and surprisingly enough...the band is open from VK to PY to XF, etc. Very pleasant conditions to work with 100w. You can find more about this contest at:

ARRL SSB International DX Contest this weekend!



I'm finally getting a little radio time again...been working non-stop for the last several weeks. I'm enjoying a little of the ARRL SSB International DX Contest this weekend. It's a great way to pick up a few new countries, make a bunch of contacts, and give the serious contesters out there some points.

You can find more info on this at hornucopia.com and at arrl.org . When I'm on, you can see my operations from "Studio A & B" on some of my cams at WB4IUY Shack Cams

Hope to see you on the air!
