Rained pretty much most of the day. Got kinda windy late afternoon. Cold front moving through.
I asked SWMBO where she would like to go if she could go out to eat. She picked Arbyâ€™s. Asked her who sheâ€™d like to take her there; she said me. So I took her to Arbyâ€™s (in Silverdale) for dinner.
While we were out there we stopped and closed our accounts at the old bank. They said they were sorry to see us go. I said that if they had kept the office in Belfair open weâ€™d still be customers. (See, itâ€™s my idea that one should not have to drive over 30 minutes to get to a LOCAL bank. If I canâ€™t get to it in less than 10 minutes (in traffic) then it ainâ€™t LOCAL.)
SWMBO was complaining about the wind & rain when we came out of Safeway; and I reminded her that SHE wants to live in Washington state. The nerve!
Still getting my radio set up. Programmed in all the local Police/Sheriff/Fire freqs into their own memory banks (ma=local repeaters. mb=Fire/Police/Sheriff) and still have about 180 more memory slots to play with. I try to set them up depending on what I think Iâ€™ll want to scan. I have 5 memories with lower/upper limits that I set up to scan 10,12,15,17 & 20 meters only in the range that Iâ€™m allowed to operate SSB/USB. Iâ€™ll just have to keep my handy dandy chart, well, handy for operating on 30, 40, 60, 80 & 160 meters. No biggie!
Still planning to do PSK31 on 2-meters also.
Still canâ€™t get the computer to firmly connect to the radio. I really outta order that new cable before I get to taking the radio apart. Iâ€™m still just learning this stuff and donâ€™t really want to take the radio apart if I donâ€™t have to.
MCARC meeting tomorrow morning. Early. Already have all the financial stuff done and ready to turn in. Being Treasurer isnâ€™t a hard or time consuming job; thank goodness. But I think Iâ€™ll go back to being just a member at the end of this term.
