    KD0GHB de N9EJR...
    Nice to meet you and welcome to the forum.
    Sunspot numbers are rising and things are perking up on my favorite band--10 meters.
    I've got an Antron A-99 that I'm waiting to raise up and use on 10, 12, and 15, and I'll
    soon assemble a Moxon for 6 meters.
    Quite intelligent of me to wait for winter to do this when I've had the antennas since May or June.

    I haven’t done much on 10, 12 or 15 yet. The 5/8 vertical I have tuned at 11 meter should let me use my antenna tuner and work at least 10 and 12. That sunspot increase is good news, makes HF quite a fun experience. I don’t envy you working on antennas in winter but you might get a few warm days, anything is possible. I can’t do much antenna work myself, lost my left leg above the knee in 2015, so I have a few ham buddies that come help with things if I need them. Bunch of good guys. I do have a 6 meter ringo I want to get up and see if it’s as magical as a buddy claims it is.

    Have fun on the bands

  3. Just noticed this thread... I'm W1XO. Been licensed since I was 14 in 1970 (WN4TCD). I like CW, especially on the low bands. I'm trying to get a better receive antenna set up for 160 meters. I've been involved in emergency work in the past, and now that I'm retired, I plan to get back into that.

    Snorlax, I own an SP-600 that I restored many years ago, and a few years ago I restored a Comet Pro that belongs to my old university, at their observatory (it was used back in the day for receiving time signals).

    73,
    Ted, W1XO

    General, KA2BAH - was still playing mostly tuba when I registered this sign.
    Pulled the study materials for Extra, but have shifted to picking up a bit of Japanese in anticipation of a trip to Oki next year (son's posted there).

    Glad to see a few more hams here--thanks to all who posted!
    Look for me on 10 meters around 28050 for CW and 28410 for
    SSB. Sorry...no FT8 ;-)
