    1. Hi Dick, thank you. I was just thinking about you today. I see your are still active on 20m (RBN) with CW. How are you and your YL? 73 Paul

  2. Hello Paul. YL is no better, no worse. We two have physical problems. She cannot walk very far. I will spend 2 weeks in USA. Not a vacation! YL will be here and able to manage for that short time. I do get on 20M occasionally. Been using the 857 at 5 watts. Appreciate the dsp. May pick up a Rigblaster for digital in USA. Most days reading my Kindle. Fan Victorian/Edwardian mysteries. (inexpensive PD from Amazon). More QRV on Kindle than rig, hi. 73 de Dick

    1. Hi Dick, it's always difficult to face physical limitations when we get older. Recovery can take a long time. I know you have to arrange things in the USA. It's a pity your YL can't come with you. Yes, a DSP is very nice especially in noisy surroundings. I do have a noise floor of S9 on 20 meter, makes it difficult to pick up weak stations. 40 meter is much better for me. Good luck with the Rigblaster fort digital modes. JT9 is very nice to do. I like the slowness of the mode and the very sensitiveness. We can do a lot with JT9 QRP. Reading is a nice thing to do. I spent only about a hour or so on HF a day. All the best, 73 Paul
