Just spent about an hour updating my LOTW and eQSL accounts and uploading/downloading stuff. That LOTW is a pain when you forget your secret key! Have my radio computer downloading my eQSL cards now. Which is repeating itself because it added a subdirectory to the directory I told it the cards Iâ€™d already downloaded were in. So instead of seeing that itâ€™s already downloaded a card, it thinks it hasnâ€™t and is re-downloading it. What a pain.
Other than that it was a fairly normal Saturday. SWMBO had to take her dizzy cat to the Vet so she didnâ€™t make the Genealogy Library today. She got back about 1400 and took me to DQ for a late lunch. Our usual stop at Safeway and we came on home.
She was tired so she laid down and read awhile while I took all the maters I canned in 2010 & 2011 to our neighbor. He really likes them and we werenâ€™t using them fast enough so I figured â€œWhat The Hell.â€ I still have a butt-ton of maters Iâ€™ve canned in 2012 through this past week. More than enough for our needs.
And I found 4 cases of Applesauce we havenâ€™t used. (And a case of fruit cocktail.)
Listened to JT65 signals most of the day. Interesting but I havenâ€™t made any more contacts using that mode. Did make a contact in Cherry Hill, NJ for a QSO party. Which got me to updating LOTW & eQSL.
So now Iâ€™m sending CQ on 2-meters just to see if it does any good. Just about bedtime anyway.
