Hot radio room

Rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated. I haven’t been on the air much because my house lacks air conditioning. Of course, the radios make it the hottest room in the house. Hence, it’s kinda miserable to sit in there are listen or talk. But I’m still here.

I did manage to lose a swr/power meter after an electrical storm. Thought for sure I lost my finals but some fiddling around and I was tuning up fine with the meter out of the path. Replaced the meter and all is good again. Whew! That was close.

Oh… and I walked through this year’s 13 Colonies event with no problem. Even got one station on CW. I also got the bonus station. Epic fail on the satellites though. Just couldn’t get a signal up there in any useful fashion. Have to keep working on it. Talking on the birds seems to involve some artistry I’m not privvy to yet.

73s!
