I love the sound of CW in the mornings

I haven't been doing a wild lot of radio lately, with one thing or another. Some of you may know I am writing a book about Newgrange, set to be published in the autumn. That project is going to keep me very busy over the next six months, so unfortunately radio time will be limited. However, I will do my best to keep as active as possible nonetheless. I have been trying to make a couple of QSOs in the morning time, before going to work. I generally give a CQ call for a few minutes and try to put at least one or two callsigns into the log before heading down the road to work. Hence the above poster, based on the famous film Apocalypse Now, except I've changed the familiar catchphrase "I love the smell of nepalm in the mornings" to something more suitable for the hobby! Not sure how good Robert Duvall's CW is HI !Anyhow, hopefully I will catch you on the bands approx 08:00 to 08:30 UT on CW.


  1. Very very funny Anthony showed Julie and she had a hoot! I remember seeing you on TV (as well on your blog) regarding Newgrange. Good luck with the book and look forward to hearing more about it as well.

    1. Thanks Mike. The idea came into my head yesterday morning while tapping away at the key so when I got a bit of time last night I decided to make the poster. Gave me a giggle too!

      The Newgrange book won't be published till the autumn but time flies when you are trying to write a masterpiece! So I will have to devote a little less time to radio for a while.
