First 17m QSO New Saturday 10 April 2021
Having heard others mention good success on the 17m band in recent months, I have finally had my first 18MHz QSO (CW) with RA6AEW. This is my highest frequency HF contact so far.
Crystal clear spring water at Fowlmere Sunday 21 February 2021
All of the hides at RSPB Fowlmere are closed due to the flu du jour, but we still had an excellent view of a barn owl doing circuits around us. The chalk beds of the spring-fed streams here make for a crystal-clear view. On this occasion, the foliage just beneath the surface caused a striking, glossy green portal in contrast to the muted colours above ground at this time of year.
