Today my lower back started hurting a bit around mid-morning, for no particular reason. It hurt all day, but is a bit less since I got home. It is nowhere near incapacitating, though. I did work (such as I do) all the day, and washed the clothes and put together the antenna. Saved a "hard" Sudoku while reposed in the "little room", a term that this article implies I should not use.
Here's is the antenna, a 2 meter (band) 4 element (number of, uh, elements) quad (shape). I made it out of PVC pipe according to an article in a book about T-hunting, the art of hidden for hidden radio transmitters. I need to get the book out, I don't think the feedline is supposed to just hang down like that. Also, it needs a base to hold it up. Can I make one out of PVC pipe?
I am too pooped after wrestling with this thing for an hour to test it. Did I mention I had to put it together? It was disassembled for storage.
Yesterday I finally found a cache I've looked for before. I was fortunate in that some of the paint had come off to reveal a tiny shiny patch. Can you see it?
That is all I got for today, Happy Friday!
It's not JUST about what I had for breakfast...
