Was trying to post this while we were down south, but could not get a good 'free' internet connection. Anyway, my daughter is now a licensed ham with a 9W2OMG callsign. Probably she is among the few 14 years old hams getting their licenses this year.
Anyway, she has her own handy now, a Kenwood TH-F7E which has a lot of features which I didn't realised when I bought it. It has dual monitoring, it is a dual band HT and guess what, it is a scanner too which could receive SSB. That is interesting for sure..
Tomorrow will be a big day for me.. I'm going to make a bit of adjustment on my base antenna setup. I've bought a Diamond CP-6 vertical antenna .. and I guess it is the right time for me to put it up. I've surveyed my roof top and I guess, the X200 need to make a move for the CP-6. Helpers? Nah, don't think I need to organise an antenna party .. I'll ask my daughter help for sure :) Family antenna party may be .. haa..haa.. Will try to post any photos taken during the exercise..
