My Blog here at N0UN.net is just like me – “a little bit different”.
Over time I’ve seen and read other Ham Radio related Blogs, and to tell you the truth I specifically built this Blog because I thought a bunch of them suck. Some of them really suck.
Seems all you get on most other Blogs were the Blog owners “opinions”. No news, no nothing – just the Blog owners opinion. Well, in my opinion – opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one, and they all stink. How’s that for an opinion?
Some blowhard Ham Radio related Blog owners are quick to point out that “they’re the best”, or the “most visited”, or the “most enlightening”, or the “most experienced”, blah, blah, blah – blah, blah, blah, blah…. Yeah, well whatever.
Sure, I occasionally Blog about what interests me, but take a good look around because there’s a lot more than my part-time posts. On every page there’s FOUR different DX news feeds, a dynamic world clock showing local times right now, active solar and sunspot numbers, direct links to sites like QRZ.com, eHam, QTH, etc. and so much more. All constantly updated, all current, all the time.
World Times Now at N0UN.net
N0UN.net is kinda’ like a one stop shop for DXers. If it’s happening, it’s accessible from here. And that’s why I built and maintain N0UN.net. I keep ONE window open on my computer. From that single window I can read Col’s (MM0NDX) DX-News.net scrolling across the top of every page, or I can view DX news from DXNews.com, DXCoffee.com or the ARRL feeds from column right. I can see it’s 1:01 AM local time here in Denver, 4:01 PM in Japan and 10:01 AM in Moscow all in one quick glance. If I want to go look somebody up on QRZ.com, I don’t have to go open up another window and type in QRZ.com, I just click their logo. Same with QTH.com Classifieds and other relevant Ham radio sites – one click and in.
And if you haven’t noticed by now, here’s a couple more things. I am not PC (politically correct) and you don’t see any annoying as hell advertisements, pop-up windows or any other kind of that bullshit around here either. You want lame ass Google ads, pop-up windows, corny theme songs and crap like that then go visit somebody else’s Blog. Maybe they need the extra dollar or two a day their ads make to survive in this hobby of ours (click, click). If you want DX news, then we’re glad to have you here. N0UN.net can be another useful tool in you, the DXer’s toolkit. Use it, bookmark it, abuse it, or ignore it – it’s up to you.
That’s it for now Good Reader of N0UN.net. I’m tired. Oh, if you think I’m missing something ’round here or you’d like something added, drop me an e-mail and if we think it worthy, we’ll add it. See you in the next big pile-up!
