Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated

I’ve been playing a fair bit of radio lately.  What I haven’t been doing is working on any electronics projects or posting (obviously).  Since starting my new job I haven’t had the mental energy to work on personal projects after an 8 hour day.  I’m starting to get settled in now and can feel that starting to change.  I fired up the transverter and K2 this evening and unfortunately the transverter didn’t come up.  Let the troubleshooting begin!


In other radio related news I picked up a new amplifier right before the ARRL DX SSB contest.  It was a lot of fun working some of those stations on the first call.  I ended up with 175 Qs without really getting after it.  I’d just cruise up and down the bandmap for the most part.  I got a couple new DXCC entities and filled quite a few DXCC band slots (10 so far in LoTW).  Here is what the operating position looks like now:


I hope to be posting more frequently again and will certainly post what the issue was with the transverter once I find it.  73 for now!
