Yesterday or today. Just, mostly, SSDD. Sun came out awhile yesterday; a bit more today. But it wasnâ€™t warm or anything. Not with that breeze blowing. Nice enough to take the Dog for a walk around the back of the property; but just barely.
The 2-meter/70 cm antenna I ordered did come in today. And it took me all of an hour to get it up and running. Had to use that length of really thick coax I have cause all my other cables have one of the connectors cut off (for various other antenna projects). Thought Iâ€™d have to go and buy a new cable but found the thick one.
Works pretty good, but I donâ€™t think it works any better than the old one with the Club repeater. Maybe there are just too many trees and mountains in the way and Iâ€™m not going to get a great signal ever. Unless I get a really tall tower or something. But this one works with other repeaters just fine so Iâ€™ll stick with it until it wears out. Which will probably be never.
Like I said, the sun was out a bit more today and I did get to spend some time outside. That was okay while I was doing things but that didnâ€™t last too long. So I pretty much â€œwastedâ€ the day reading â€œAlas, Babylonâ€ for the umpteenth time. Still a good book.
Anywho, the love of my life is home and Iâ€™m gonna spend some time with her before bedtime.
