20m FT8

I have been doing a little watching and learning on 20m FT8 over the last couple of days. Not the best on a 40m dipole, but hey if i put up a real antenna for the band it can only improve. So in the next couple of weeks I will have access to 20m, something that i cannot do on my current license, so i figured i should start to learn when and where the propagation tends to go in preparation for when I have access. There are a couple of all time new ones in that list, not enough to get me to DXCC in a hurry, but its good to know there will be DX to potentially work.

40m CW Net

Its been a while since i did any cw and so while tuning about the bands tonight i stumbled across the last part of some net, i have no idea what its called or how often it runs. There were only 2 stations participating, VK4NX and ZL1NZ. Its been probably 12 months since i did any cw and so i was very rusty and missing lots of what was being said, bring on HRD and its decoder and it filled in enough blanks to see they were discussing the weather.
