Summer has arrived
The weather forecast is for fime weather on the next few days. I'm not complaining but dare I say it, Olga and I have been wishing for some rain - Olga to water the garden and me to see if the rain gauge of the new weather station is really working!
With some freshly charged batteries in the KX3 I thought I would see what I could hear from out in the garden. The answer was - not much. Band conditions seem to be pretty dire at the moment. True, the antenna I was using out there (a WonderWand L-Whip) is not the most efficient I could find but it is easy to tune and usually receives OK. But today I could hear almost nothing.
