So am on my tea-break and check my text messages and find the following from Peter (M3PHP):-
- Myself and @Gadget17 have been awarded the RSGB Kenwood Trophy for significant contribution to training in providing hamtests.co.uk Woohoo! (via Twitter magicbug)
I have to call him and find out and he tells me that this morning he woke up to find not only had RSGB Radcom arrived but a letter from the RSGB, on further inspection it turns out that the RSGB Board have awarded Paul (M0TZO) & myself the â€˜Kenwood Trophyâ€™ for our significant contribution to training in providing the HamTests.co.uk website which offers mock questions for all levels of licences. (copied in part from following Peter M3PHP post)
We are of course very proud to be awarded the Kenwood Trophy and will be attending the RSGB AGM which takes place in Bristol on the 19th April 2008 and commences at 11am.
If you are going to the AGM do say hello you canâ€™t miss us, and of course checkout www.hamtests.co.uk
The new shack is moving on at a pace now. Spent today painting the ceiling with another coat of paint, even typing this with a little paint still left on hands.
Tomorrow (Tuesday) I will be giving the final coat and touching up the paint on the walls. Also I will be glossing the doors and window sill.
On Saturday James, MÃ˜BOV & Martin M1MRB have said they should be able to come round to help me install my Hustler 6-BTV (I know, about . time)
With less than 2 weeks to CQ WPX I have to finish this.
Finally, on Friday will be operating /p with James MÃ˜BOV.
OK, not sure how this will affects my sites, but I have finally been moved to a Dreamhost Private Server.
I am starting at the lowest level, hoping this is all my sites need. But if I need more resources I can easily add from the Dreamhost web panel.
Was a few hiccoughs during the setup as DH network was slow running, but they were sorting the move. All sorted now.
Any problems noticed, please use my contact form.
I have decided to re-write and re-post the post about my trip to France being cancelled as I think I can cope better with the writing now.
My uncle who got me into Amateur Radio and who I was going to visit for a week at end of March this year died 1 month before I was due to leave.
So my grandparentswent to France to sort out the usual things, and I have had to re-think my holiday time.
I have decided in a kind of memorial to still continue with the contest. But this means quickly moving my shack plans forward.
The main bits to paint are the gloss on the doors and skirting boards, and a few bits to touch up here and there.
Then antenna needs to go up. Finally flooring needs to be laid then Desk, computer and of course Radios moved in.
There is also a strong possibility that I will have access to a contest callsign, but will post full details nearer the time.
