Time keeps marching, I keep working. If I’m going to continue to have a page, I need to update it more frequently.

Anyway, as promised nearly 6 months ago, here’s the picture of what Santa brought last Christmas.

Rigol SA

It’s a Rigol DSA-815 spectrum analyzer with tracking generator. I’m very fortunate. It also makes the W7ZOI spectrum analyzer project I started kind of moot… although, one can never have enough test equipment.

I also picked up these interesting items.

FT450 & KN-Q7A

The top unit is a KN-Q7A SSB transceiver, this one for 40m. Assembled from a kit, this is a very fun little radio from CRKits.

The bottom unit is a Yaesu FT-450D, which followed me home from this year’s Dayton Hamvention in May. And, NO! This does NOT mean the homebrew station project is dead. Just…

Until next time. 73!
