Funny enough, that's my family motto:
No radio today. Getting ready for Florence. Antennas down for now. So much for Route 66!
wound an xfrmr and hung a 12x12 loop around the office ceiling so I can listen to 160m/75m. thinking about buying some 213u and moving the antenna outside- loop on ground.
ya might want to put your "Floaties" on before going to bed Ben !!
Good luck and stay safe Ben.
Checked into the Noontime net, QRP 10 watts with Mike WB7BVW in Longview, WA.
Checked into the Noontime net with Jimmy W6FHZ in Reno, Nevada.
Same old/same old.
D-Star this afternoon. Tonight, I'll see what's happening on 40. If there's not much in the way of SSB or CW in the later part of the evening...well, FT8 here we come. Again.
Listened to Web SDR here at work, on a Saturday, during a freaking tropical storm where they have pleaded with people to stay home unless you absolutely must drive out. This has been the longest work day of my life lol. At first I thought "wow, easy money today". Not so much. All my busy work is done, shop is empty, and in 30 minutes I can go home and actually Radio today lol. Rant over, thanks for reading
Edit, the newer version of FT8Call is now available, so I may play around with that when I get home. Something new and interesting.
Thanks. Winds gusting 35-45, probably 6-8 inches. Power out 12 hours Fri nite, out for 5 hours tonight. Could have been a lot worse.
