Amateur Radio

Three years, about so, have passed since we left Allen and settled in McKinney. In those three years I’ve not had a good radio station, and for two good reasons: 1) no access to the outside for my coax 2) no satisfactory ground. It’s a recipe for electrocution.

I’ve had some success with very low power levels (QRP) on a bicycle/tricycle. But it has it’s limitations–removing the antenna after each ride. But that’s not all. There’s the no-code people. They’ve turned ham radio into CB. I think it’s part of a larger plan, the grabbing of amateur radio frequencies–selling them to the highest commercial bidder. I won’t be surprised when it happens.

So I guess I need to work at writing and blogging.
