Worlds Biggest Antenna Storage Facility Completed!

Yes folks, we can store over 1,000 antenna kits and 100,000m (330,000 feet) of DX10 antenna wire now! Next job, building worktops for the shop and desks for the studio. My thanks to VPM UK (Racking) for the supply of the racking gear. See you on the next one. Callum, M0MCX.

Ham Radio – Do you Actually Enjoy Your Hobby?

Ham Radio - Do you Actually Enjoy Your Hobby?

I have notice a number of angry folks around this hobby, particularly since this tightened-up less "human interaction" issue. So I like using a bit of "Contrast" in my life. Having variety in your life, change of tech, change of scenery or a change in how you operate might help you avoid becoming one of the local agry guys – and help you enjoy your hobby again. Callum.

Why did I stop selling on eBay? DX Commander

Why did I stop selling on eBay? DX Commander

I respect eBay and I originally built my business on ebay but as a professional seller, I am extremely dissatisfied how I can interact and have a personal relationship with my eBay customers. For my £20 per month, there’s no customisable engagement ability, I can’t write automatic emails explaining where to get user guides etc or just keep them informed unless I go through one-by-one, I can’t keep them informed about delivery issues en-masse and actually, the Ham Radio category doesn’t allow me to list products with variations, eg 7m, 10m, 12m, 18m poles etc. And eBay also seems to accidentally encourage customers to get angry and demand their STUFF! This is why. Callum. DX Commander.

Measuring the HUGE Sloping Floor in the Workshop

Measuring the HUGE Sloping Floor in the Workshop

So it turns out that the floor runs out by around 75mm (3 inches) which is more than I bargained for. We’ll make up some wooden shims and lift the racking level. Next job 🙂 Callum.

CB 11m Radio – President McKinley FM/AM/SSB – 27MHz

CB 11m Radio - President McKinley FM/AM/SSB - 27MHz

My Christmas Present this year was a CB radio. Now we can begin to fully explore the CB radio world again and maybe do some /P work too. Wendy likes the idea of coming on the channel too so watch this space. I look forward to hooking up again with the COventrty lads whom I met on frequency earlier in the year and maybe there are some Birmingham CB/11M that we can also hook up to? WHo knows. Callum.

Ho-Ho-Ho! Santa Delivers 1,100 Ham Radio Telescopic Poles

Ho-Ho-Ho! Santa Delivers 1,100 Ham Radio Telescopic Poles

We had literally ran out the day before when our freight company called to say we would get these the next day. And as we were leaving, this truck arrived, a day early! Just as well we were still there! Apparently we should have unloaded these one-at-a-time because we hadn’t paid for the manual pallet truck – but we had paid for a tail-lift truck. What’s all that about? Anyway, at Holly Farm, we do have a 24×7 fork-lift available so we can drop all these right by the racking. I liked the music, it’s called "Weather Any Storm by Cody Francis" from my Epidemic Sound account. Callum.
