More Radio Fun

In October I wrote a post about Amateur radio  (here) , since then I have some news, both on the equipment front  and on the licence front.   Last week I  took and passed my Intermediate Licence , this allows me access to a few more  frequency bands and  more importantly  quite a bit more power on all the bands I can use. I've also got another radio that allows me to get on the HF frequencies and I've also built a fairly stealthy but reasonably high performing HF antenna.
