KONG47 Travel Day - And a Message From The Jaguar

Travel Day - or Day Zero? Anyway, it's time again to send daily updates from our DX-pedition in Kongsfjord, Arctic Norway. 

OJ Sagdahl and Ole Forr will arrive with a rental car later in the afternoon from Kirkenes Airport. I have a much shorter route, 170 km from Vadsø to Kongsfjord. Weather in October can be challenging, and certainly changing, and we're now in a transition from cool, snowy and relatively calm weather to well above freezing, rainy and very heavy winds - with all the effects on road conditions that go with the change.

So, what does the Jaguar software have to do with this? Well, if you don't have a Perseus SDR but one that will work with the HDSDR software (such as any SDR from SDRPlay), you may find this write-up interesting!

Weather: Here in Vadsø at the moment (07:00 local) 0 Celsius and a little windy. Out on the "real" arctic coastline at Kongsfjord around +2 Celsius and winds gusting at 17 m/s or 35 kts. Below is a photo this morning from the village Ekkerøy, east of Vadsø (facing northeast). Will start my drive at around 10:00.

Hoping for safe travels!

Interesting write-up Bjarne. Can we somewhere download the file renaming tool?
