28 back to life ... 1 day only


Saturday 1/9/2012 morning 28MHz propagation map including  EU ZL (not here)

RUS RADIO RTTY   several JA contacts 28MHz 
In the evening 28 showed remarkable propagation.
FO4BM  around 23 local.  Weak on the dipole.  Missing my Stepper.  
XE1KCS/B EK09   OA4B 28.200  heard
Very weak heard  ZL4TEN 28.228  over SA 
just realised to ZL is always longpath..

Need to get  a 2nd mast again for the Steppir.

High expectations for the Sunday morning 28MHz opening to VK/ZL but only "normal" propagation left  with VK2KRR and VK6DZ copied

My procedure to handle a picture  in windows
With  ALT + PrtSC key the  active window is copied to the clipboard. But  using ctrl + V  does not place the bitmap image to this blog. 

I tried MWsnap  to select and copy a part of the screen.
Then this picture is saved somewhere  to  your user files
It can not be found in the "my pictures" map. I tried again to save the MWsnap picture and did notice the location where i should be saved. But it is saved somewhere in a hard to find place in my PC.
Possible the application data area.
My normal procedure is with Picasa3 running minimised.  ALT+Prtsc  to copy the active window to the clipboard.
Picasa then shows that the screen image is added to its collection
Then I open Picasa and export this picture to a map that can be found back.. Exporting gives the option to adjust the size of jpg compression for a website.
Usual the windows "My pictures"map   but Picasa  makes a sub map Picasa exports  there is no way to place the exported image direct in a selected map..

Then  use  the Blog edit insert image  and search exported image back at its location.

It is a bit complicated  insert image shows a row of sources from where an image can be copied. But not the clipboard?
Seams a logical source to me too.
