Again sorry for the delayed postings but it seems that 1bar of LTE cell strength is not enough to upload a post with pictures….. I have been looking at a cell phone signal device that makes sense to the ham in me.
However…… After suffering two power outages this past week we are thinking of getting a larger generator for back up power as the 1.5kw one we have now is not large enough for our current comfort levels.
Other than that everything is going well here. Liz is happy and comfortable and therefore my life is stress free.
More later once I find a better (stronger) internet source….
On the radio side of things I currently have 2 antennas in the air. We have our OTA TV antenna up about 20 feet which is giving us Global TV, CBS, FOX and 4 PBS stations. I also have on the rear of the trailer my Diamond discone ( 2m and 70cm) antenna at 15 feet which lets me have solid C4FM communications into Kingston using the VE3FRG repeater. In the near future I hope to get my S9 43 foot vertical back in the air but I need to fabricate a mounting bracket that was a bit stronger than the one I was using. Better to be safe than sorry.
