Hopefully, your antenna is withstanding the snow and cold... that is tracking across the country.
I'm waiting for more snow.. higher winds, and lower temps.... before I go try to put my antennna back in the air.
(I want higher scores in next year's contests)
 
See you this afternoon.

Have a great day,

Ah, the rhythmic music of the code, what a sweet enchantment it weaves.... Keep her coming to the shack and she'll be hooked. By the way, better to shovel snow with a shovel than a pacemaker :)
By the way, that small power supply I got from you is an absolute jem, Thanks again.

Naw, mobile devices, nee cell phones, aren't the problem. The real
problem is kids being taught that there is a bogeyman behind every bush.
Naturally, they shy away from any activity that involves "talking to
strangers" as a result of such training. What one does on a mobile
device is mostly orthogonal to what is done on amateur radio, IMHO. The
only thing they compete for is time, otherwise, no competition at all.
