On some mornings, it takes me more than 2 minutes and 43 seconds to tie my shoes.
Takes me longer just to find my shoes LOL
I had to solder the PL259 connector back on to my LMR400 today. Yup, I forgot to disconnect it from the van last night and started to back out and it pulled the connector off. The first time I have ever forgot to disconnect. But it seems to be working even better now, all is good again at camp Lisa.
OK, I sat on my back proch for a while yesterday. I got two bug bites. That is as far as I'll get for being outdoors. I did make some local 2 meter contacts while sitting out there though.;
I mostly took down all my antennas for typhoon season, but tried to chase a SOTA activator this morning using the 40 meter VGP now horizontal on the roof on 20 meters. He was mobbed and I guess he couldn't hear my 4 watts and no antenna. The I resumed work on a tramline system for putting my ungainly hexbeam up on the tower mast after the typhoons are done. I fettled a new hanging bracket from aluminum and tried it on my scale tramline model. When the winds die down I'll attach it to the real hexbeam and give it a try. Oh, and I left my 6-meter Yagi up but almost on the roof, monitoring FT8 I just saw I missed a great opening to Eurasia!
Jepp! living on the mountain edge, plenty of space
Werkin on the BC-348 project now.
Trying to figure out these dial lights. Feeling stumped.
Lighting circuits are supposed to be really simple right?
Good job you are not a centipede or you would never get out of the house..
Finished up my Gonset Commander transmitter cables, and will match it's output link coupling to 50 Ohms, so I can use it tomorrow on the morning net. Will mount the big power supply in a rack cabinet.
