Grrr things got crazy after the semester started back up and i haven't been able to do Radio things...

A very merry #Hogswatch to all!

Waiting for our insane ~8lb pork pie to cool and enjoying a nice port.

Somehow thought it was Saturday and missed both my nets... I'm cutting myself slack, i was up all night with my kid. Nothing serious, just up.

So now that Radio Shack is completely out of the Radio business.... Shouldn't their trademark be invalid? I mean if anything its current authorized use by crypto conmen presents more consumer confusion than a radio shop with that name would.

Just found out about the Defunct toyline and now my CB handle will be C.B. McHaul Y'all!

Remember when Radio Shack sold radios?

Welp the just sent me the complete handbook rather than just a replacement for the volume that was damaged. Very nice.

Well my ARRL handbook got here damaged, but their support person was quick to sort it out and get a replacement coming my way. So that's great.


It doesn't fit. The hand in the pic is the wee one who ended up with it.

My GF: Could you run D&D on ham radio

<My pause due to analysis paralysis showing her how much ive thought about this.>

The Rfinder B1+ looks pretty cool. Not sure what the advantage is other than not having to carry around a separate DMR HT.

Me: "Well my 25 dollar radio aint up to satellite work..."

Friend: "Can it contact the ISS?"

Me: "If i throw it REAL hard."
