I almost missed the transmission for today. Luckily a few people in the HFZone discord group reminded me at the last minute. I as actually in the skip zone for the first 10 minutes of the broadcast but it came through after 1 or 2 pictures. Below are what I managed to decode this morning. Some pictures are missing due to failing to grab the image headers. Let me know what you think, considering the conditions I had to deal with. Stay tuned to my blog to see how Sunday night’s decodes go!

I think this is pretty much a perfect example of hams working with shifty propagation conditions. These guys had a hard time hearing each other when the band started to shift when the sun came up. But… I could hear everyone perfectly! I guess I’m in a good geographical location for that. I find this interesting. I love 80-meters in the early morning! See video below—-
Just passing through this morning and checking up on a few server things. Also, this is a test of the wordpress android app. Looks like wordpress has managed to really impress me again. This kind of stuff just blows my mind…
I will be doing alot of transparent rearranging of some compute instance resources and configurations sometime today, for a few days in duration. Don’t worry, it should not be noticable. 🙂
