Almost A Shut In Tuesday. Almost.

Cause it’s Wet out there! And it’s supposed to get wetter. But we did have a small break so me and the Dog went for a quick walk around the back of the property. Did Not manage to walk between most of the drops though. I’m fat.

The BEST Man-Cave Wall Ever!

But I had to make a run to the bank anyway to deposit the Renter’s rent. Made a donut stop by Safeway on the way back. Picked mail up on the way in. Netflix Day! Yay! Got, and watched, the Jesus Christ-Superstar Live Tour and it was pretty good. Surprised myself by remembering most of the words.

The BEST Cloning Program Ever!

Just ordered a mag-mount for my 2m/70cm antenna so I can start getting my radio mounted in my truck. Then I ordered a 3 COAX cable switch so I can run all my HF antenna’s through the automatic tuner I have. I could probably sell this AT-300 tuner I have, but would save it to take with me on trips. It only weighs a couple of pounds so I’ll probably leave it in whatever RV trailer we get. Gotta buy 2 mounting kits for my yaesu 857d, one for the truck and one for the new RV trailer, so it would be fairly easy to mount the radio wherever I’m going to use it. Next month I’ll start checking out ham sticks.


Started saving up for another 857d that I can just mount in the truck and leave there. Or move to the RV trailer. May take me awhile but I will eventually save enough. Or I may buy a different desktop model and mount the one I have. Long as I can find an affordable radio that also does all the “digital” stuff I like doing. And will run on batteries. But if I get another 857d I can clone them if I want to; or when I need to.


And that’s it really. MCARC 10-meter chat net was pretty short cause there was only 3 of us on air. Not much else going on and it’s about bedtime.
