Time for a little update.
In my last post, someone suggested I install Linux on my old laptop computer. Ubuntu seemed like a reasonable choice. The problem with any distribution of Linux is there is really no organized plan. And if there is a bug... Oh Well! Really wished I had not done this. I ended up losing my Windows installation. I guess I will never learn my lesson on Linux. Both the SKCCLogger and skcc_skimmer run on Linux. I just wish there was a native version of SmartSDR for Linux.
K3Y QSL card:
I have received my K3Y QSL card last March. Below are the pictures of the front and back of the card. It was nice to get the grand sweep again. This is my favorite SKCC event.
The next thing I would like to accomplish is DXCC. For this, I am doing FT8. It seems the fastest and easiest way to do this now.
As of this writing, I have 100 for LoTW, 96 for eQSL.cc and 100 for QRZ. Hope to finish this soon. Already have my QRZ and LoTW certificates on the way.

Something total different:
I heard this quote awhile ago and I thought it worth repeating.
" I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant."
