    Monday 11/22/21 I finished the install of my new ICOM-7100 in the truck. I've been working on this project for about a month and now its finally done. Nice to have a mobile station again.

    Good idea on how to easily lower the antenna. Nice.

    CQ WW CW, QRP (5W). Not too much luck on higher bands, so I stayed at 80 meter (had more time in the evenings anyway).

    This weekend I finished, tuned and tested my 6-element Yagi for 2-meter band. Deployed in the attic, and will be used in the coming local VHF/UHF contest, when I will move to the attic, as I do not have a rotator - so will have to do everything under the roof manually.

    The next project is to set up a 10-element Yagi for 70cm on the same boom, so the antenna can be used for satellites and portable from a tripod.

    I even completed a simple tripod antenna mount adapter as well, as early preparation for the springtime... :)

    So ... single band, exciter level, CW WAC in a weekend. Not bad. Too bad the bands are dead and nobody operates CW anymore. ;)

    I finally got around to making a page for the blocked call list patch for WSJT-X:

    http://www.kk5jy.net/wsjtx-blocklist/

    I'm not sure if anybody will try to pick it up for the default source tree, but after several weeks of operating, it seems very stable in testing. And it has been very helpful to keep the Q rate going.

    Most people on FT8 do a great job, but for those few wayward stations who can't figure out how to send anything but their grid square, it's sure handy to be able to block that call and move on to other contacts.

    It's like "spin the dial" but for just one call. :)

    Ahh yes, the folks with poorly configured bots or something usually. Or something. I want to believe they're bots. I want to believe humans don't do that poor of a job with mouse clicking. Why do they gotta make us look bad :D

    Maybe all these "Click here to prove you're not a robot" are just front ends to someone's FT8 session and how they "automate" the process when away. :D
