First ride of the year. Between self isolation and icy roads it has been the first opportunity to do it really. I didn’t go very far but it is a start, at least I got it out the cupboard and went somewhere.

Thanks to @tj for fixing up the bike. It's working well.

Was thinking of @pla so I stopped to take a couple of pictures. Seeing his posts on the timeline were definitely a contributing factor leading to me going on a ride today. Sometimes you don't do something for so long you feel pretty detached from it, and those posts helped me to reconnect.

Today is one of those days where I can’t remember how to write a letter Q, but then after telling myself I got it backwards had to go check that it really was backwards checking a reference Q online. The direction of the tail seems a pretty arbitrary thing, so I’m just going to ignore it.

These are the last two. I didn't receive all of them as I had missed some of the start markers. There was a lot of QSB but as I have finally received /something/ I would say this is a success. Now that I know how to do it I'll have to give this another go in the near future and see if I can improve, maybe play with my filters a little to reject some noise.

These were earlier in the day, but it's taken me until now to post them because I couldn't work out where fldigi had saved them, if at all. They are in ~/.fldigi/images.

Images I received from today's This is the first time I managed to get it working. Using fldigi on Debian, with my IC-7300 and MFJ Super Hi-Q Loop in the attic. 15770kHz @ 1340 to 1400 UTC

These are the cards I received up to the end of 2020. Hoping to be getting a lot more in 2021.

Doesn’t look like that was the problem. I’ll let it cool down for a bit and maybe it will start working again. At least they’ve not leaked, which was what I was afraid I’d find when I opened it.

AEA PK-88 may have developed a fault. It has been on for a few days while hacking on HamBSD and now seems to reboot randomly and forget its settings.

It /might/ be the backup battery is dying, that’s the only thing I can think it might be.
