    Starting to look like I am a real ham. Slowly unpacking my crap and making The Nut Sack (see alternatives to shack thread) look more and more like home :)

    Fixed a couple Rat Shack HTX-10s. Both had the same problem, interment audio when you wiggled the volume control shaft/knob. Turned out to be bad crimps on the solder terminals where they connect to the carbon track on the control's little PCB, Strange problem, I guess there's some flexing going on around the control mounting area. Fixed by "re-crimping" with some big long nose pliers.

    This past weekend was the good, old RTTY Roundup. I'm pleased with myself--about 350 QSOs. That won't win any prizes, but I can't go at contests like l could...well...seems like just yesterday. And it also seems like just yesterday the old Model 19 was clattering its head off. Do I miss it? Nope. As soon as I figgered out how to use a VIC 20 for RTTY, I used one. And today's setup--N1MM/MMTTY--is light years ahead of that futuristic Commodore computer. :)

    That's nice wall paper Rob.

    Don't collect so much you have to paper over the wonderful view out the "shack" windows. :p

    well, I know how I will be spending radio time this weekend, cutting up and disposing of the numerous fallen trees from last weeks winter event here in Central VA :-( ! Of course it happened when I was out of town and the wife had to deal with all the attending issues, power outage, generator failure, running out of propane, etc. etc. This was apparently a very unusual storm, just driving to and from work, I see (literally) hundreds of downed trees that were hastily cut up so they could be moved off the roadways and now sit on the shoulders or in ditches awaiting final disposition. This storm took out my HF and dual-band antennas including the new 40 m dipole that was just installed about a month ago. Of course, they are now saying we could be getting another winter WX event this weekend, boo hiss!
