While I was at the last ComputerSheaux, I ran into an old Ham
radio buddy of mine. We've known each other for SOOO long,
we BOTH forgot how long it's been. Hihi. (LOL!)
I got "burned out" on ham radio several years ago, from some
"jerks" stateside in a ham radio national organization ), I was in,
(10-10 International So, I packed all my radio gear up and got
off the "bands" and got into Linux.
Well, John got me "fired up" again about ham radio and I have
unpacked some of the gear and will be getting back into"radio"
and sort of putting Linux away for awhile.
There is a local bunch on 444.900 mhz. that has gotten my
attention with "technical" discussions, tom-foolery, antenna building,
chasing distant stations (Europe, tiny Pacific islands, other exotic
places on 6 meter single-side band, etc.
I'm even dragged out my Kenwood "twins" to get back on HF
radio, LOL. I even have plans to help out with the local SkyWarn
activities when we have "bad weather" (wx).
I will continue to be the SBLUG Board of Directors rep to the
ComputerSheaux. But my activities in the local linux group will
be somewhat dimminished.
73's (Best regards),
