Today I met with Ian of Icom UK over lunch who presented me my D-Star QSO Party prize! It was good to have an in depth chat with Ian, and hopefully many more to come. Makes a change from me bending Don’s ear! See the official Icom UK tweet here.
The D-STAR repeater project GB7KH is well under-way with the repeater on soak test at my home. See the repeater project website for more information.
Today my Icom IC-7000 and associated separation kit sold on eBay. I have wrapped them up for posting. I’ll be sad to see the IC7000 go, since it’s been my main workhorse for a long time – It’s been everywhere, that radio; from the university office to touring around Europe! I’ve replaced it with the IC7100 for DSTAR use, as well as an IC7700 (which I have had for a while).
Today I purchased an Icom ID-5100 and fitted inside the car. I have been eating up the miles driving back and forth to Cambridge on my industrial secondment.
