Spotlight WA3UVP Relaxing at the HF console
WA3UVP Relaxing at the HF console After a year of planing, building and installation, the new HF console has been a real pleasure to operate. All the gear is vintage and spend most of my time working SSB, but have been busy getting back on CW. Hope to catch you on the bands!
