Cause Iâ€™m in a Doctor Who Mood I guess.
Actually, itâ€™s been such a nice day (90+f) that I was busy outside (mowing, gardening, and things) as much as possible and didnâ€™t even think of dinner until late. Fish sticks & fries were easy and quick. And I like them. (And I donâ€™t actually â€œfryâ€ anything. Youâ€™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, Iâ€™ll probably be on it more. The thing cost $700 so Iâ€™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 wouldnâ€™t â€œactivateâ€ 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 itâ€™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 donâ€™t know if he got it or not. Left him a contact report on his QRZ long and said â€œThanks for popping my SSTV virgin bubble!â€
Oh yeah, had to get dressed to make a run to the Vape Shop in Bremerton for some new attyâ€™s. Other than that itâ€™s been a Naked Monday. Iâ€™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 didnâ€™t text her he wouldnâ€™t be there until she stepped off the ferry. So, sheâ€™s home safe and just relaxing. Cool!
