Suffered through July recovering from Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (footnote: don’t get this unless you have a month to waste feeling absolutely miserable and enjoy massive doses of antibiotics). My extremely low energy level has kept me from the radio. Haven’t felt like contesting much.
Skipped WAE CW, missed three sessions of Thursday Madness, had work commitment during NAQP CW and not sure would have shown up if I were home. This damned tick stole my mojo!
So I still have a bunch of stuff I need to do in preparation for fall starting with the Tennessee QSO Party. My partial list:
- Wire yagi pointing W for 20 and 10M
— Replace 20M EDZ with 80M dipole with ladder-line feeder.
— Install 40M loop for N/S
— Get something in the air for 160M
— Move station back to spidery basement
— Make up some coaxial stubs for SO2R (manually switched)
