Cause I’m in a Doctor Who Mood I guess.
Actually, it’s been such a nice day (90+f) that I was busy outside (mowing, gardening, and things) as much as possible and didn’t even think of dinner until late. Fish sticks & fries were easy and quick. And I like them. (And I don’t actually “fry” anything. You’d be surprised how things turn out in the oven at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.)
Actually made a PSK-31 contact earlier today with WA6TS down in Sunnyvale, Ca. Cool! First contact in almost a year. I could not explain why I took a break from PSK-31, and Ham Radio in general, for as long as I did. Just seemed to be busy and never had the time (or inclination). But, now that I have a good computer set up and running well and am able to connect to my radio every time, I’ll probably be on it more. The thing cost $700 so I’d better use it!
Tried setting up a couple of extensions on my blog to allow downloading posts in e-pub/mobi format. The one worked okay as long as I made the post online. Posting from this Windows Live Writer just wouldn’t “activate” the conversion buttons. Ah well. I like composing offline way too much to switch to online. Can take as long as I want to compose a post, change it as many times as I want before publishing, and it’s just plain easier.
Just made my first contact using SSTV on 14.230. Quite by accident I transmitted a picture and Kd0TUU sent me one back with my call on it. Cool! Sent him one back but we lost contact and I don’t know if he got it or not. Left him a contact report on his QRZ long and said “Thanks for popping my SSTV virgin bubble!”
Oh yeah, had to get dressed to make a run to the Vape Shop in Bremerton for some new atty’s. Other than that it’s been a Naked Monday. I’m sure going to miss this Wx!
Oops, had to run into Bremerton to pick SWMBO up at the Ferry Landing. Her son got caught up at work and didn’t text her he wouldn’t be there until she stepped off the ferry. So, she’s home safe and just relaxing. Cool!
