Milestone in blogging

Today the number of hits on my blog just exceeded a quarter of a million. When I converted my old web pages to a blog I didn't really expect this many readers, so I thank you all for each and every hit on one of my 106 blog posts.

I have been blogging here since May 2011. But I have actually 23 posts which are older than that as I copied posts from my old web pages and gave them the original date of publication. The oldest post actually dates back to 2001 and is the first modification I published for my Elecraft K2. That was the year when I got my ham radio license

These are the most popular posts:
  1. How to make a very cheap VHF receiver (2011)
  2. The best of the Baofeng handhelds (2013)
  3. QRPp: Ultra low power operation with the Pixie (2011)
  4. Scratchy Tivoli Model One (2013)
  5. Temperature compensation for an Arduino ultrasonic distance sensor (2014)
  6. A regenerative receiver for the 40 m band (2011)
These pages (not posts) are also among the most popular ones:
  1. General modifications applicable to any Elecraft K2
  2. Unofficial Guide to Elecraft K2 Mod's
One thing I have learnt is that hands-on articles are the more popular ones, and they don't necessarily have to be on ham radio topics.
