Or reasonably so. Made another run to ACE Hardware for some smaller U-bolts; then mounted the 6btv on the pipe I pounded into the ground for it. Itâ€™s almost straight up and down! Damned cold out there!
Me and the Dog did a tour of the â€œback 40.â€ No (new) trees down and didnâ€™t see any bear crap. Damned cold out there!
Walt, our neighbor, got his new laptop and spent TWO DAYS trying to log into a Microsoft account he hadnâ€™t yet created. But he didnâ€™t realize that until he called me up to go over and help. We created the account and he hid his password from me when creating the account. Didnâ€™t work. Needs eight letters, numbers, special characters; so I made one up for him. Had him write it down. Tried it several times and it worked. He called me about 10 minutes after I got home: password doesnâ€™t work. Damned cold out there!
Not much else going on. Just waiting on the MCARC 10-meter net to start in about 1.5 hours. SWMBO just left for a couple of hours of quilting. Son just got in from work. â€œFist Full of Dollarsâ€ on the 2nd monitor. Local news stream on the Nexus 7.
Oh, made contact with KA6BB, The USS Missouri (BB-??) Amateur Radio Club, today on 17-meters. Was cool!
