The Cold Moon

On 12/12 at 12:12 we had the “Cold Moon” – the Last Full Moon of the Decade!

Luckily, while we had plenty of clouds, I was able to see the Full Moon – which is the last Full Moon of the Decade! We had mist and fog but the moon was peeking through the clouds and mist – it was gorgeous.

The 75A4 is Almost Immune from Noise

In an odd twist of fate, my Collins 75A4 seems more immune from noise than my SDRs are. This leads me to believe that my noise is digital. I just ordered a W6LVP loop – it is perfect for my needs and will be less than 1/2 of what a Wellbrook + some kind of DX Engineering TR Switch would cost. The NCC-2 is also way too expensive (in fact, as much as I love the DX Engineering gear – their prices now have gotten too expensive). There is a value / price point that I always have in mind, and the NCC-2 is now priced outside of that range.

Enter the W6LVP Loop – it is in my value / price point – the way the DX Engineering products used to be.
