It’s been a while since I’ve composed anything on this site and frankly it’s because I consider most aspects of Ham Radio boring. This isn’t the first time I’ve taken a break either. Since last December I’ve exclusively worked digital modes, with FT8 as primary. This was fun for a few weeks as I learned more about my new Yaesu FTDX 3000 and how WSJT-X worked. After a month of operating FT8, I realized it didn’t in fact involve much effort to make contacts; after two months I realized I had completely mastered the art of pointing and clicking within WSJT-X. I never made it to the end of three months.
