Saturday early morning K1N 1817.4   strong! to 589 big signal for 160.
That should be an easy one call QSO..  hahah I did not knew then that I better went back to sleep...

One time responded PA0 but never received my full call then they went on with an Italian.
Hard to understand that with such signal I could not make it.
I used to have a decent 160m signal even with low power and thought it be easy with such signal. Should have known better eorking DXpeditions with the QRP ACOM1000 is very hard..
They will have heavy QRM s9+  I guess
It is like EME working DX-peditions  the path attenuation must be about the same and the QRM does the rest.
after some hours of trying I finally  conclude   it is a mission impossible  for my humble station.
And I better just keep sleeping next time.

K1N 1826.3 heard well max 529 or so not strong enough to copy me
no clear greyline peak  best time 05UTC 05:30 here

K1N  T-shirts  in 2 versions now  you choose the one that fits best!

Received from mini in the box   a HDMI to VGA converter 
finally i can connect the Raspberry Pi  to VGA type monitors that are available a lot
Not having to connect it to the TV screen HDMI
The Raspberry pi needs many powerup's to get it booting.
i did de Linix  upgrade command
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
updating this tiny PC  took about 1 hour about 400 list items where upgraded

(This text is still altered  by the HTML i have pasted before, can't help the html code is sticky)

The converter 6€ it is brandless... the Raspberry on the screen nice to have it back to play with.
The HDMI only is not a good option for hobby projects.

Connecting a USB-Wifi modem and could browse the internet 
with Midori 0.4.3  seach machine DuckDuck go
typical the humor of the Linuxians ..
Surprising  that it worked right away 
(but little later access was broken ..)

Ha Jaap,

Ja die K1N dat is me wat. Op 10m en 20m gewerkt. Op 30m zijn ze 's ochtend pas als ik al in de auto naar mijn werk zit of zitten ze in Shitty te werken.
Op 20m-12m gebruik ik de R5 die 3m boven de grond staat. Nog een wonder dat het op 20m ging. Op 12m vaak gehoord maar met die idiote split moet je puur geluk hebben of met 10kW ver boven het maaiveld uitsteken ...

Ze lijken wel wraak te willen nemen op EP6T die veel US amateurs heeft gefrusteerd (maar daar konden ze niets aan doen tgv extreem hoog ruis niveau).

K5D was destijds een stuk makkelijker te werken.
