learning progress CW

I want to work in telegraphy on shortwave mostly. Furthermore I am fascinated in HST (High Speed Telegraphy). As learnig platform I use the site lcwo of Fabian Kurz, DJ1YFK.

After a break of some months I had to start again with reduced speed.

On 2013-12-15 I reached my goal and completed all 40 Lessons with 15 WpM. Every practise text lasted 5 minutes.

new design

The design of my website was a little bit boring and had to be pepped up. So I looked around and found a suitable template (RealEstateXL-ET) and adapted it to my needs. Here you see the result. There will be some minor changes, but the basic design will remain.

heard ISS

Today at about 12 o'clock CET I could hear the International Space Station with my handheld transceiver.

As part of the ARISS project (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) the ISS was in contact with a school in France (Ecole Les Muriers, Saint-Maur-des-Fosses, about 15 km southeast of Paris). The students had prepared questions they asked the astronauts.

Unfortunately, the receiving was possible only for a short time and I missed most of the answers.
