Thanks everybody for the support over the last few days - and over the last three years or so. When I got back into ham radio after  about a 25 year break, I was amazed at what digital had to offer - especially because I started out using my rain gutters as antenna. I had planned on finishing this a year ago, but technology is not always on our side. ;) I did shift my focus a bit from doing mostly PSK to being a POTA activator. I’ve done a few PSK QSOs from parks, but there again is more that can go wrong. 

So thanks again and I hope to see you all on the waterfall again soon.

Congratulations Karl!!!  I remember when I got close I had to wait a whole year to get that last contact.  Believe me...I was watching the calendar and couldn't wait for that day to come.  Well done!!!

Congratulations, Karl!!

You made it!!  366 is not a trivial accomplishment and you deserve a big round of applause!

I looked for you yesterday and did not see you on PSKReporter. I was hoping you found a way to take this baby home!

73 and keep up the great work,

See you on the waterfall!

Subject: [070Club] Calendars are Hard!

Last August, I was ready to fill my calendar for the 365/366 endorsement. I was missing three days during the week we always spend in the Adirondacks. I came prepared with my radio, an antenna and a Raspberry Pi set up with Fldigi. Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties and hardware problems, I was not able to make a single PSK31 contact. So I marked the three missing days on my calendar for this year and started two days ago to fill in the missing days. Thanks to John KC3FL for helping me to fill in my calendar. Based on what I had in my calendar, I should be down to one missing day now, so I thought I would upload my logs and take a screenshot of the one missing day in the calendar for the family photo album :) Imagine my shock when I saw that there were two days missing... The good news is that it's the next two days and not something that I would have to wait another year for. Yup, calendars are hard :) I will be on the air again tonight and tomorrow night to fill in those two missing days. Thanks again for everybody out there willing to answer my CQ calls or to work me when I answer theirs - especially to John.

See you on the waterfall,
