and spliced the antenna wire and got the antenna up (temporarily) on my deck about 12 feet up (from the deck. Thatâ€™s about 22 feet up from the ground out back). Works great! I can ping repeaters Iâ€™ve only been able to monitor before; but canâ€™t connect to a repeater I was able to with the old antenna. Still, itâ€™s kind of like the old Dogfighters; winning 3 or 4 with 1 loss ainâ€™t bad numbers. BTW, thatâ€™s a 2-meter/70-cm antenna.
Now I gotta figure out how/if Iâ€™m going to mount it on the roof. And since Iâ€™m moving my stuff back into my office/room, Iâ€™ll have to move it anyway. Maybe this afternoon. Not sure yet. Shouldnâ€™t have any trouble holding the MCARC 2-meter net now!
About half way through wiring the receptacle extension in the new cabinet area (where weâ€™re going to put the microwave & toaster. I just donâ€™t know how to explain it). Should have that done in the next half hour or so. Then I get to start to â€œprettyâ€ it up.
Thatâ€™s done. Managed to secure the wallboard Iâ€™ve installed a bit better. Got my room straightened up enough to put my computer desk back in; if Iâ€™ve a mind. Did move the bookshelf I built back into my room. That took an hour!
Fish sandwich & Bakes for dinner. Tasty!
The only kind of downer today was: I am probably one only person in the world klutzy enough to cut my thumb taking the safety cap off the disposable razor. Yep, I did it this morning. What a dipshit!
Damn! Iâ€™m getting to be a real Doctor Who fan. (At least of the last two incarnations.)
