In the post yesterday was a box containing a revised version of the KF5INZ “Easy Digi” kit as modified by Paul, M0CNL https://m0cnl.blogspot.co.uk/ – I mentioned Paul on my last post about how I thought he had unfortunately drawn the short straw to help me with this… I didn’t expect that help to be giving me a kit though, thank you so much Paul…!! I really cant wait to get started… It appears to be pretty simple but what I’ll do is post my progress, pictures and a write up of how I get on setting it up, sorting cables etc.. however during the week its unlikely anything will happen as I’m so pooped plus I need to tidy the kennel up – its a bloody mess!
Regarding the title of this post “hams are a very generous bunch!” – In the short time I have been involved in amateur radio I have only ever come across people who want to help – be that by giving equipment out FOC, imparting lots of advice or just their patience in putting up with (and answering) stupid questions that only a beginner can ask and which I have probably asked more than once – whilst I’m sure every hobby has a similar sort of Elmer type within it I think that hams are a different breed all together. It appears they always want to help, they want to be part of someones enjoyment and learning process, it gives them as much enjoyment giving as it does the person they are giving too… (“always be a giver”) – so far I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of some. THANK YOU Paul for this kit and to all of you who are helping me progress and learn!
Once this Easy Digi box is complete watch out for some weird SSTV images from me – I cant wait 🙂
