Goodbye 2020

It’s the 1st of December and that means that 2020 is almost over.

I don’t think there will be many people who will look back at 2020 with fond memories. 2020 always sounded so futuristic to me; a year with so much possibility. Let’s just say the reality was a little underwhelming!

I haven’t done much radiowise this year other than just plain old operating, but my D-STAR reflector XLX678 has been used much more in recent months and appears pretty stable.

Here’s to a good 2021!

Out with the old…

I have always wondered about a vanity callsign for my US licence. I was automatically assigned KEØGGA when I passed my technician and general class exams and that was just fine. When I passed by extra class, I saw that KØLX was available but my licence class hadn’t been upgraded at that point so I couldn’t go for it.

Fast forward a couple of years and I was idly perusing ae7q.com (mainly due to procrastination) and found KØYC available. I applied for it – as did around five others – and to my amazement, it was granted to me on 27th August!

While KØYC might not be that personal to me, it’s nice to have a 1×2 callsign and I can still look around for the future.
