Help me out – Which One do you Prefer?

Help me out - Which One do you Prefer?

I need your help on this one. I’m looking for a track to record for the channel trailer and I need to know which one you prefer. This was NOT going to be a video but I had some low-res footage of me because I ran just one camera almost by accident – and after some over-night thinking, I managed to graft it all together – it was quite a technical challenge!

Yes, I really have NEVER practiced these tracks before. I have only played them "in my head". First time I’ve been on the kit in months. Wendy thinks it’s about 18-months. I am out of practice clearly but I did loosen up after a while.

Had continual difficulty listening to the track in my headphones but I dare not turn it up any more for fear of hearing damage. As it is, my ears were still "ringing" last night, a few hours after the session.

Anyway, let me know which one you prefer. Callum, M0MCX.

I fitted the Messi and Paoloni Connectors today - Nebula Project

Something else that took half a day (!) I fitted the Messi and Paoloni connectors to the Extra Flex Bury coax cables and tapped out the aluminium plates. There is now NOTHING stopping me from putting this little "honey" up in the air! Callum. M0MCX #dxcommander #nebula #18m

The FINAL PUSH Nebula Antenna – Hose Clamps, Guys & Elements

The FINAL PUSH Nebula Antenna - Hose Clamps, Guys & Elements

I made the rubber hose clamp assemblies today, prepped the guys and elements and made up the huge shock-cord assemblies for the top guys. Close up view of the 18m pole and a bit of fun along the way including a small fire – just for the click-bait! 🙂 Cheers all. Callum, M0MCX. #hamradio #dxcommander #nebula

As I move to the "final push", I discuss the considerations including harmonics and practical problems involved with multiple elements and their tuning. We discuss element lengths, mechanical connections and hardware. Callum. #MNHR #YTB #HAMRADIO

Tilt Over Vertical Antenna Nebula Base – 1 day build

Tilt Over Vertical Antenna Nebula Base  - 1 day build

I made a "generic" tilt-over mast base for guyed antennas when I had some "last minute" thinking last week. This will suit both the regular DX Commander and also the giant eXtreme Nebula antenna (coming soon). 60+ radials now down and pegged out. Next job: Fit connectors to coax, prep elements and also the giant hose clamps. Will be putting this up Tuesday 15th Sept. Look out for my 80m signal to USA that weekend 🙂 Radial Pins here: https://www.m0mcx.co.uk/store/products/biodegradable-ground-radial-pins/ Cheers, Callum. M0MCX #asmr #nebula #hamradio
