Back running Seti@home (plus more)

Well I have recently re-installed the software to run SETI@home software.

But in the time away the software it can now run more than just Seti@home. It’s now run using BOINC software from and I am running on 2 projects.

As well as Seti@home I have setup to process work for “ is the largest experiment to try and produce a forecast of the climate in the 21st century.”

Will add a box soon to About to show how I am doing in the search for Aliens and a Weather forecast.

I was registered before on Seti@home but alas I seem to have lost my stats as none of my logins work so starting from scratch. Have joined the Ham Radio Op team for my stats though.

2 days of Portable Radio

Saturday and Sunday this week was out using the radios instead of stuck in the shack.

Saturday:- Went up to Reigate hill. Martin M1MRB, Denis MØNDJ, James MØBOV, Tim M3TKB (soon to be 2E??), and myself operating. Worked various bands with various radios and antennas. Some photos (taken with camera phone as I left my digital camera at home) are here. One antenna was even the infamous Slinky Antenna.

Sunday:- Went up to Warlingham Ridge with James MØBOV. I setup my SandPiper antenna. It’s based on a 9M fibreglass pole and there are 2 coils (I had to wind). A coil for 10/12/15/17/20/40M and 1 for 10/12/15/17/20/80M. It closes down to approx 1.1M & can handle up to 300 Watts SSB. I used the 40M coil today.

I didn’t make many contacts but worked some stations on the Polish contest and also heard a Brazilian station almost 5/9, but alas I virtually ran my battery flat trying to work him. Antenna though worked as expected.

Note:- Make sure battery is fully charged and don’t spend too much time trying to work one station.
