June 11-12 Les, Josh and I went to Coffeyville for Josh's Scout campout at the Coffeyville fairgrounds. We had a great time and it was a blast.The wx was terrible hot and the overnight low was 81 degrees so sleeping in the tent was warm but we all enjoyed our time. We had a good supper and a GREAT breakfast can scramble of sausage, taters and eggs..... MMMMMM GOOD. After the campout broke up we went to Big Brutus to see the 4SQRP guys that were having the Brutus Bash. The bands were bad and the guys were soaking up the shade so me and the boys toured Brutus... MAN that is one huge machine. If you ever get the chance it is worth the price to climb around inside it. The picture above is Josh late Friday night. he was about asleep in his chair.
After work tonight I found the UPS man had left my Oak cabinet for my ten Tec 1054 Regen receiver. The little case is a thing of beauty and well worth the price. I will still do some more alignment and then fit it in the cabinet. The case is BEAUTIFUL de Paul N0NBD
Fishing was slow today as the HEAT is on. It is way too hot to play radio in my second floor un-airconditioned shack. I have a 5 dollar/5 minute WA0ITP antenna strung out my kitchen window to a convienent pecan tree. I saw a post on QRP-L and went looking for WW2LST and found him. We had a few minutes chat and I will send for another of their cards. This was the second time I have worked the ship. I listened around and found no other ships so I did other things. This is a picture of my kitchen station. the station is a ATS III3B, a BLT tuner, a TE NE KE and a 1.2 AH battery. de Paul N0NBD
