Week's Recap on the air

I haven't been on the high frequency bands lately, mostly because I've got a noisy radio.  Based on internet research, I think there's a filter or two going bad in the FT-897D.  Hopefully I can get that addressed soon.  The radio will receive clearly at times, then so noisy at times even digital signals like PSK are wiped out completely.

For whatever reason I decided this week to spend plenty of time with the rig to see if I could further isolate the problem.  I didn't narrow it down.  But in the meantime, I did log a lot of new contacts, including a few new DX entries.

One contact I missed was my fellow blogger KD0BIK, who's active in SOTA - Summits On The Air, out in Colorado.  He operated from the peak of Genesee Mountain near Denver today.  Propagation just wasn't in our favor though.  Perhaps next time!
