This page unintentionally left blank

Well, it seems that my goal of trying to write at least one entry a week has slipped away. I usually try to write on either Saturday or Sunday, but I kept putting it off, and before I knew it, the weekend was gone. Unfortunately, this has been pretty close to another "Almost too busy for radio" week. Fortunately, I have managed to spend a little time in front of the radio at night, working J5C in Guinea-Bissau, FO/OH1RX in the Marquesas, and TO5FJ in St. Barts. None of those were completely new countries for me (even though St. Barts is a new DXCC entity, I worked FJ/OH2AM previously), but I did pick up a few new bands or modes for each of them.

Other than that, I have been receiving a steady stream of cards back from the big batch that went out just about three weeks ago. It's great getting everything back, and it's surprising how quickly some of the DX stations are getting their cards back. I'm going to write a bit about this next time, including a look at the return rate.

This weekend is the ARRL January VHF Sweepstakes. I usually participate in that but I'm not quite sure what my weekend plans are, so I'm going to play it by ear. And of course, I'll save some time to get back on schedule for my blog.

    Don't worry! From my experience blogging goes up and down like waves. And nothing is worse if you tell yourself "I have to blog something" :)
