My mates at NASA have been kind to me this month, two fly bys of the ISS and this one right over my village, Cambrils. I only hope that the astronauts don’t chuck anything out of the window as I will be outside in the garden waving at them.

Have I fallen in love with another 40, not a Jag though, the 40 Meter band. I have discovered “Hamsphere 4.0” or a virtual ham radio emulator set up that runs on a PC, Mac, Android or even Iphone. It has its own antennas, plug ins and accessories. I did a lot of DXing in my misspent youth (CB and all that) and was also a radio op in the military, so I have gone back to basics on this one. I know we have smart phones, Whatsapp, Skype, and all the rest if those modern instantaneous communication packages, but there is still something basically exciting about DXing with another “ham” who is halfway up a mountain in Chile, or lives in a village in the north of Holland. I seem to have a lot of time on my hands and I need to find these added pastimes otherwise I may have to start talking to the wife. :oops:
