Picked SWMBO up at the Ferry Landing yesterday evening and ran her out to her class at the Mullinex Church building. Dropped her off and I went to Walmart.
Bought a nice battery, a trickle charger (one of the supposidly SMART ones), and some other stuff to move my radioâ€™s from house power to battery power. Walked out of Walmart $130 broker but think thisâ€™ll work out.
So, today I put it all together and hooked it up. Only had to make one run into town for different parts. Working good so far. The little charger thingie has a constant green light: indicating the battery is charged. Been listening to all three radioâ€™s most of the afternoon and it hasnâ€™t changed. Cool! Now, if/when the power goes out I can still operate my radioâ€™s. And, if I donâ€™t permanently mount this outside, I could take it along for field day. Need to get a solar panel for field charging. Hmmmâ€¦
Not a whole lot going on. Working on the radioâ€™s part of the day. Taking the Dog for walks. Playing with localhost and setting up Piwigo & WordPress to play with. Really important Retired stuff.
Picked SWMBO up at the QFC and we be home. Sheâ€™s off in her room doing whatever she does in there. Waiting on a friend of herâ€™s to show up for some fabric. Radioâ€™s still working just right. Doctor Who in the background.
Think Iâ€™ll go lay down and read.
