What I like about naps is, I can get them done while I'm sleeping.
If they can, they do; without thinking if they should.

Hi,

I don't usually post on such an unrelated topic to this discussion list,
but I know many on this list are interested in flying and WW2 aircraft
and I'd like to share this with you.

This link and comments were sent to me from a friend. I think you may
enjoy watching the short and professionally produced film about a flight
doctor and a Spitfire photo mission pilot.

A must see!

We had 8 hearty checkings on Tuesday, and some of them were on 40 too. 
Will be looking to compare temps with you today... let's see who has the coldest to report, ok?

And it is warming right up here... up one degree since sunrise.

The 40m net meets at 2345z on 70625, see you then.


See you this afternoon.
Have a great day,

Heard W5XE and K4QQ here in Tulsa on the early net with only a whisper from, presumably, Johnny. Not strong enough to even attempt to check-in. Guess I should have tried.On the late net, only the "whisperer"....40 was long indeed! Had ol' #52 Cyclone 40 warmed up on the battery, ready to go to the dance but got "stood up" by the ionospheric gods. We'll try again next week.

80 was fairly good tonight.  Many thanks to all who checked in.  It was especially first timer KC4URI and second timer W0CC. N0YJ was even good copy tonight, thanks for making the haul again Bert.  VOACAP indicated that the MUF between Johnny and I was abt 6 mc, and it was an accurate prediction as I heard him loud and clear on 80m, but couldn't hear him at all on 40M.
 
Thanks again and hope to hear you all again next week.

Re: QST, I need some operators on Wednesday to QRV...

GB Hoyt
 

Well fellas,
I had fun. Didn't make a whole lot of contacts, but I did successfully deploy a 100w capable HF station in less than 20 minutes, did it twice even for good measure.
Everybody got a kick of the Rockmite I had with me, and the guts of my MFJ tuner.
bands seemed strange. Kids got a kick out of hearing the CW on the lower end of 20, the third graders especially thought it was neet, and the kindergarderners thought the W1AW code practice was the bees knees.
tried calling on 21.330 and 14.330, but no joy for the kindergarderners.

got the station tore down and hustled over to the third graders.

passed out QSL cards I've received over the years, and they were impressed. QSLing is important dontcha think? :) Ive got a bunch to send out I know that!
Explained how radio turns one kind of electricity into another, and sends it through the air as I set up the station. set out a call on 14.330 and got KW1DX to come back!
kids were impressed with that. A couple of them got a chance to ask a question. at 11, I had to QRT.
Pluses:
1. it was fun!
2. Kids had fun!
3. Kids liked home built stuff like the rockmite, and the antennas.

negatives:
1. the modern tech got jealous and quit on me at the wrong time. Fone decided to konk out and the twitter app "updated" and broke behind my back. Jerks.
2. band condx were iffy. but that's ham radio.


Thanks again for helping me out guys!
will have to do again in the future.
