It’s time once again to check the stats on my ham radio adventures blog. This is done with the assistance of Google Analytics, which reports more things than I can handle.
The basic one is website traffic in pageviews for every one of my website’s pages and posts. The possibilities now number 791 according to Google. I won’t build that list but here’s the top 20 including links to the pages if you’re interested in the topic.
- Ham Shack — this is always at the top of the list. It must get great search results.
- FSK Interface — this post documents how to build a serial interface for the Elecraft K3 to run RTTY FSK (versus AFSK) for both the main and second receivers.
- New Transceiver Icom IC-9100 — this is an overview of the IC-9100 that I used to replace the Elecraft K3 and IC-910H in my ham shack in early 2017.
- Vee Beam — this is another case of showing up in what must be limited options for a web search. I tried out a vee beam in my backyard. It didn’t work all that well.
- Stressed Moxon: Ingeniously Elegant — this is an overview of the Par Electronics Stressed Moxon for 6 meters. It continues to work great and takes up limited space.
- Satellite Antennas @ K5ND — this is a description of deploying Diamond yagis for 2 meters and 70 centimeters along with a Yaesu G-450A rotator to work satellites.
- Six Meter Dipole — when six meters is open, it’s truly open for a wide range of antennas. Here’s an easy way to get up and running on the Magic Band.
- About K5ND — this page provides a bit of background on my favorite topic, me.
- Mixer I: The Shy Man — this is one of my recorded short stories from P.G. Wodehouse. They can be fun stories and great for traveling from one rover location to the next.
- Six Meters Once More Magic — this post captures the magic of working Japan on 6 meters using 100 watts and a moxon.
- Icom IC-910H — info on what was then a new transceiver for my ham shack for working VHF contests and satellites.
- Back to Mac: MacDoppler — insight into using MacDoppler and MacLoggerDX for satellite operations.
- HF Verticals — this is all about setting up a Cushcraft MA6V vertical in my backyard. It went up in 2011 and is still doing great.
- Contest Logging — these are my considerations for moving into a specific contest logging program.
- Cheap Yagis — this is an overview of building, installing, and operating with cheap yagis on 2 meters and 70 centimeters.
- Back to Mac: WSJT-X and JT Bridge — all about setting up WSJT on a Mac and using JT Bridge to automatically add the QSOs to MacLoggerDX.
- RumLog — this post is a bit out of date, 2012, but provides insight into a stellar free logging program of use on a Mac.
- Yaesu G-450A Rotator — documents the addition of this rotator for primarily six meters at the time.
- Moxon Beam — I built a homebrew 15 meter moxon using fishing poles and wood. It worked great for CW and RTTY contesting including a few QRP entries. The highlight of this post is a video of the setup.
- Tuning HF2V Vertical — a quick overview of tuning up the Butternut HF2V vertical on 80, 40, and 30 meters.
That’s the list. Some of these posts have been at the top of the list for several years now. Others may be catching up. Hopefully, I’ll find a few more popular topics in 2018.
