What to do on a wet bank holiday Monday evening?

Listen to an episode of Linux in the Ham Shack while slinging some solder…

… and tuning around the HF bands.

SJ2014ECC is the Station under the green marker.

While soldering, i have been listening to SJ2014ECC (a special event station celebrating the town of Umeå as European Capital of Culture 2014), working a decent ‘pile-up’ of stations from all parts of Europe.

It sure beats listening to the rain!
