Sinsce i upgraded the skimmer computer with a new motherboard i have  problems with Cw Skimmer. When i start skimmer it starts decoding but after a while it stops decoding signals.

After consulting a few hams there are some things i have tried. Pete N4ZR told me to take care that there are now energy savings that are active in the computer. Dave K1TTT suggested that the power of the usb hubs is not enough to let the sdr-iq run.
So I have to order an external usb hub and see what happens then.

Last days I have be rebuilding my remote antenna tuner with was in a plastic box outside. I have made it in a metal box and tested it. I have to make de adjustments and then this project is ready.

I have had surgery on my eyes.
So last two weeks there was not much radio here. I have done some things but at a slow rate.

The top part of the 27m high 160-80m vertical has come down last night. The snow and the ice where too much for an older guy wire. The damage is not much. I can repair it easily.

Started building two Double Ten Switches. Print design is from Harry PE1OXP. With these switches I want to switch the band filters which I have to use when I am running SO2R.

The YCCC SO2R box is ready.
The only thing to do is making the cables between the box and the radio’s.
