Ainâ€™t it funny how you can set something up (which I did), have everything work perfectly (which it did), only to have it all go Tits-Up when you take that same setup someplace else?
That was my weekend. Made ZERO contacts. Either couldnâ€™t get HRD to connect to my radio, or DM-780 wouldnâ€™t connect. Or both. OR I couldnâ€™t get my antenna matched.
And that was pretty much how it was with everyone Really. EVERYONE had problems with their rigs or antennaâ€™s. Even N7YGE and his APRS rig couldnâ€™t get it to work right.
At least AD7DY got his working (late) and made a butt-ton of 160-meter contacts. Omer saves the day Again.
It was HOT, dusty, and the mosquitoâ€™s were horrible at dusk (and all damned night). I got about 50 bites that are driving me nuts!
So, I made breakfast for the guys before packing up and coming on home. Caravan is mostly unpacked. Truck is mostly unpacked. Took a 30 minute shower! Relaxed and elevated my left leg for awhile. (Long story. Later.)
Cooked the last of the burgers for our dinner and SWMBO watched â€œPassengersâ€ with me. Cool. Sure was nice having her come out to be with me Friday & Saturday nights. Appreciate her.
Iâ€™m gonna vegg for awhile then go lay down. Iâ€™ll post the pictures tomorrow. Probably.
