Is what Iâ€™ll be going camping in 10 years from now. She doesnâ€™t believe me. Yet.
Not much going on around here today. Wasnâ€™t as sore as I thought Iâ€™d be when I woke up this morning. Slept in late though. 0610. Guess I was tired.
Got out and moved another 30 cinder blocks from the lower back yard to the upper back yard. Figured it couldnâ€™t hurt. And, in fact, it hasnâ€™t much. Then I rinsed out the back of my truck to get all the dirt and bugs out. Even took one of those plastic scratch pad thingies and got all the BBQ sauce and grease from cooking on the tailgate during Field Day off. Wonderful me!
Our Repeater has been a lot busier lately since everyone complained about it not being used except during our Nets. Iâ€™ve talked to several of the new Hams and even some of the older guys that stay home. Talked to AC7VA (Gary) about the 6-meter band and even heard him calling someone on it later. (I was busy doing something or Iâ€™d have tried to contact him.)
Well, the MCARC 10-meter Tuesday Chat Net went okay. Only 5 of us on air tonight. I think I need to move my antenna someplace else and maybe get a better signal.
Tried transmitting on 50.125. Shuts all my USB ports down. And I can hear myself through the speakers. Need more ferrite cores!
Anywho, thatâ€™s about it. Got my peas blanched. SWMBO is home safe and reasonably sound. Another hour and I can lay down and read for awhile.
