This morning as I was heading to work, I thought it would be interesting to think about the different bands and modes that I've been active on this year. I think the list below is accurate(ish)
Most of the activity has been on VHF and UHF but with a few HF CW contacts thrown in, mostly in contests at weekends. No Digimodes activity this year, that I can remember! Must look at getting the computer and interface hooked up next year perhaps, as I do like RTTY, PSK and all the other modes. And I might sneak WSPR in towards the end of this year, if I get some time over the Christmas holidays.
A new band/mode combination for me this year was 50MHz FM, mostly using the GB3FX repeater in Farnham in the mornings, but with occasional simplex contacts as well as some tests through the new Bristol 50MHz repeater, GB3ZY.
VHF/UHF D-STAR provided a new interest too and it seems that activity levels are increasing, so I'm looking forward to expanding the numbers of contacts on those band/modes too.
I'm sure many of you will have beaten 20 band/mode combinations that I've been active on. Let me know!
