My day, and evening, was so boring yesterday that I started a post 3 times; and 3 times I deleted it. I have had some SSDD days around here; but yesterday seemed to be the SSDDiest. There was no way I was going to subject y’all to that.
So I thought I’d double down on it today. Except for a run to the bank to complain about not being able to log in while running Linux just not much has happened today either. Oh, didn’t feel like cereal for breakfast (again) so I stopped by Safeway on the way back from the bank and got a breakfast burrito. Then, this evening, I really didn’t feel like cooking so I made a run to Taco Bell.
Did spend a couple of hours programming that JT-6188. Found out you have to program both the send and receive frequencies. That sucks! Radio should do all that automatically. Worked just fine for 2-meters but am having a bit of problem with 70cm. Not sure why. Am getting the offset right, and tones, but it doesn’t seem to want to work. I’ll get it though.
One thing I don’t like about this radio is that it won’t take the sheriff/fire/air frequencies at all. Which I like listening to. Especially when we have a storm or lots of snow. Looks like I’ll be keeping the Icom 2000h and will probably reprogram it just for those and let it run in the background all day.
About to go pick SWMBO up at the Ferry Landing.
And SWMBO and I got busy setting Skype up on her phone and just generally enjoying each other’s company after we got home that I forgot to post this. So you get it today! Lucky You!
