"I'll give up CW when I'm dead! MAYBE!" (Rick, KC8AON)

Activity from OKFF-0467

The first activity this year was on a sunny morning with my son Petr. I used KX3 with an EFHW antenna on a tree. Finally, I made 57 QSO. The weather was superb but after midday, it gets worse, even started snowing. Propagation was quite good, I made QSO all over Europe. 

SFLE – Simple fast log entry

It allows you to enter QSO very quickly using a simple syntax. Data are stored only in your browser. The website does not collect any data about you. I was […]

CQRPROP 0.0.7 has been released

After a few years, we have a new release. Suddenly, images from the hamqsl server stopped loading. The website is behind something like a firewall that checks the UserAgent string. I’ve set the UserAgent to Firefox and the program works again. New files can be downloaded from https://github.com/ok2cqr/cqrprop. There are binaries and deb files for […]

New antennas installed!

It took almost a year. I had to use sloper for 80M for all bands but finally, new antennas are installed. It took us almost 3 days to install everything including all cables etc. I could not do that without help from my daddy Franta, OK7WA, and my friend Zdeněk Faltýn who took most of […]

GP7DX antenna arrived

I had been using GP8 for a long time. Last year I had to take the vertical down because of roof repairs. It’s in a good shape but sometimes after heavy rain, there is a problem with SWR on some bands. Maybe some of the traps are not completely waterproof after all the years. Last […]

For Ubuntu 18.04 […]

After a week there is the first bugfix release. We fixed some bugs related to CW keying. The new version is building on Launchpad. The complete changelog is in the Download section.

CQRLOG 2.5.0 has been released

After a really long time, we have a new version. Packages for Bionic, Focal, and Groovy are ready to go. For the first time, there is also an official arm64 release. Look at Launchpad CQRLOG repository. Most changes are done by Saku, OH1KH, and others. Thanks a lot! I added only a few small fixes. […]

Vertical is down

I had to put down my multiband vertical because of roof planed roof repair. I’ve been using it for 14 years and it worked fine. Last years there were some problems with SWR but nothing what I could not fix. It should takes about three months and I’ll put it back. New place should be […]
