Getting Started with HF
It is worth noting that I haven't yet started my own experimentation with the HF bands, so this section will be a bit spartan until such time that I'm able to compete my "shack" and get on the air.
I finally have the beginnings of my shack, an Icom IC-7300. My antenna situation is poor, and not yet in its final form. However, I will soon begin construction on the "official" shack and get a better antenna. I have primarily been using FT8, which works, but is rather boring. I haven't had much success yet on phone.
