Shut down shortly after 1300 UTC to go shopping.  Thunder and lightning parked on us since we got home.  Antenna down, rig and computers disconnected, only Xfinity modem and my router up, sending this from my tablet.  Supposed to clear about 0000 UTC. Hope to get back on then.  Was hoping for some 17m and maybe 15m this afternoon.  Oh well, if the prop doesn't get you, then the tstorms will.

Dick,

Saw you working Harald, DL0OCE, in Germany. You had a good signal. I called you up about 200 Hz and then resumed CQs around 2,300 Hz.

You still need 2 bands for your APE Hunter Cert.

Get to work!

73,

Re: I'm going APE myself

Jerry N9AVY
 

With low sunspot activity and not seeing many members around lately, I believe waiving that rule would be beneficial to many.  Since APE participation seems lower than normal as well.

But it’s up to the “APEMaster .

In the past, that clause has been waived for spur-of-the-moment operations.

 

Maybe we can get a ruling from the APEmaster.
