News at Amateur Radio Station W8MDE

It's been rainy so I've been getting on the air.

W8MDE is my new amateur radio call sign.  My old call sign was KD8JHJ.   

Call Sign CW Weight Results
Call sign    Weight
KD8JHJ    82
W8MDE    54
K8MDE    54
N8MDE    50  (shortest)

Weight is determined by the number of dots, dashes and spaces that make up a call sign in Morse code.  The lesser the weight the less effort and time expended during sending.

Check out my new bio page at  put my call sign in the search.

Crawford County Amateur Radio Club 
50 Years of Service Special Event

I consider it near sacrilege to not activate a cw (Morse code) station at my club's 50th Aniversary Special Event.  The weather forecasts called for rain and storms but we got lucky.  I set up in the open and enjoyed an afternoon of rare sunshine.  Went home and changed into shorts.
