Many moons ago, I was a writer and editor for Test&Measurement World, an electronics engineering trade magazine that covered electronics test and measurement. I wrote about stuff like how to use oscilloscopes, how analog-to-digital converters worked, and how to interpret multimeter specifications.
This was so long ago, that we didn’t even have e-mail! As a result, any reader feedback was precious. Even now, reader feedback is precious to me, so I thought I’d mention two bits of information that has just made it my way.
The first was from Dave, N4KZ. I worked Dave last week while I was on vacation. Every year, we spend the better part of a week in a cottage on Elk Lake, which is just north of Traverse City. I take my KX-1, throw up a dipole in the trees, and make contacts sitting in a screened-in porch overlooking the lake. Very idyllic. It’s always a thrill when guys recognize my call sign from reading my blog.
Next, is an e-mail I just received from Mark, KD8BIG. He writes, “I just wanted to let you know I spent a great deal of time on your web-site and really enjoy it.” He asked for permission to link to my blog. Well, the more links, the merrier! Feel free to link to me any time, any place (well, almost any place).
Mark also has a blog—the KD8BIG Blog—that is certainly worth taking a look at. He has some interesting posts on the recent coronal mass ejection (CME) and the resultant ionospheric disturbances. Check it out.
Do you have anything that you’d like to tell me or have me write about? Comment here or e-mail me.
