I do have a problem with European Russia and Asiatic Russia counting as separate countries.  So far, no one has been able to tell me which set of DXCC rules allowed that to occur, and in researching past DXCC rules I can't find any that would allow for Russia to be separated that way either.

I think (so don't hold me to this and somebody probably actually knows the story) that it had to do with the Soviet Union which was made up of independent republics (in theory anyway). So there was the European Soviet Socialist Rep., the Asiatic Soviet Socialist Rep., and of course all the other socialist republics that made up the Soviet Union. They all counted as separate entities. Now, of course, the "all the other" entities ARE independent countries. So Asiatic Russia would be a grandfathered entity I guess.
My opinion (yes, I know, we all have one) is that the big continent wide entities should be split up. But they didn't ask me.  Grin Grin Grin

With a polyester 10mm diameter rope as an endless halliard over the tree and a messenger rope of served polyester sash cord 3/16 diameter to the dipole end, the messenger rope frayed through from rubbing on branches and all came down on Thursday. Only been up for some 7 or 8 years though....

I too have had trees grow round ropes.  Irritating.

When looking at an antenna's vertical radiation pattern at different heights, it's worth examining where the nulls fall in addition to considering the low elevation gain. It might be worth sacrificing a dB of gain if it avoids a 30dB null at other arrival angles you might be interested in.

The Philippines maintains a military presence on a grounded/beached ship one of the islands that they claim.  There was some recent news about their effort to keep the ship stabilized and inhabitable.

That's easy, replace it with a brand new Gerald R. Ford class carrier  Grin

That sounds logical to me. Now, as I switched to get every group repeated it is a lot easier to copy everything without problems. So I will try to work me up to 10 characters and then start with 2 other characters and work up to 10 again. After that I will try to combine 5 of the first set with 5 of the second set and so on. The problem is, that it is relatively easy to copy a set of characters, when I know which characters could come. So I have only to concentrate on those.
From all the replies I figured out, that there are probably more ways and most of them could bring me to success. So I will try different approaches. I think every repetitin in listening to morse code brings my closer to my goal.

I was a little bit frustrated, because at the beginning of my journey, I progressed quickly by just learning to recognize every character and be able to send every character. So I thought to me: "that's easy. Wouldn't last long to be able to make QSOs. What a fail  Shocked

So I recognized, that I have to be more patient.

Do we have to spell it out in harsher terms?

WARFA appears to have a large percentage of African American members. Whether we are willing to admit it or not, racism and xenophobia still exist in this country and some of those people are hams.

It's that simple...

This.

Jeez, some people have nothing better to do with their lives than spend it harassing a bunch of people that are trying to live in peace.  If any of those jammers is reading this, I feel real sorry for you, your life must be really pathetic.

I have a copy of the 'Westcode' booklet produced for their publicity in the 1930s.

Train stops have a long history - even back to the 1850s, while the Great Western Railway started fitting an Automatic Warning System which would stop the train automatically if the driver didn't acknowledge it and act. That started in 1906. There were two crashes it didn't avoid: one was partially due to stress on the driver who had just had his house bombed in 1940 and the other was down to the method of fitting to the locomotive - a British Railways Brittania Class  - and poor maintenance, which rendered it ineffective.

If your HRO has a significant image problem on 20m, it isn't aligned properly or else your 7-14 MHz coil set has an issue.

Or you live in Europe where you need well over 40dB of image rejection for a 456kHz IF receiver operating on 20m.

You can cheat a bit with some regeneration in the second RF stage, but that doesn't help IMD performance, which matters on 7MHz here.
