Which means I had my usual day. Trimmed some pork chops out of that huge hunk of meat SWMBO got. (Looks like fresh BBQ Chops for dinner!) Theyâ€™re sucker-bagged and in the freezer. Dishes. Laundry. Watered the plants & garden. Went for a walk or two.
Great Wx for walking the â€œback 40!â€ Got up to 95 degrees or so yesterday and should be in the high 80â€™s today. Too Cool!
Finally got off my lazy old ass and swept the garage. Got everything ready for a dump run for when SWMBO gets back from her foray into the wild city. Need to stop by Ace Hardware and see if my new mailbox is in.
Ordered a little 144/440 mag mount antenna to put on SWMBOâ€™s car for our trip. Looking for a bracket thatâ€™ll hold my radio without drilling a lot of holes in her console or dash. Left a question about whether this antenna would work with my Yaesu 857d and got a lot of answers telling me to use it for 2-meter/440 only. Well, Duh! But I do appreciate all the answers I got. No one could tell me the max watts on this though. Can I use the full 50 watts on 2-meter? Probably should have asked that question. (So I went back and changed the question.)
You know, that rig I made up to mount my 6BTV antenna on the truck worked out just great. Wonder how I can mount it to SWMBOâ€™s car?â€¦
Dump run went okay. Quick; itâ€™s only a mile away.
Pork Chops were delicious!
