attic at 47.2F so it's time to turn some radios on for warmth.

University of Michigan Amateur Radio Club (W8UM) net Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on 145.23 Mhz Ann Arbor or .

Hope to hear you there.

Current temperature in my shack in the attic is 49.5F, hoping to turn on all the radios and warm it up a bit.

This net is a friendly net and you don't have to have a affiliation to join. I refer to it lovingly as the "Fix your radio hour".

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

a friend in a very bad auto accident, trying to figure out any reasonable response.

Getting somewhere, but damn, it's a series of late nights to get enough into my brain to make it start to sort of make sense.

For extra grins I'm trying things out on not one but two clusters, a one-node Mac which works just fine, and a one-node system that's a bit shaky still.

looks like the copyright office is increasing streaming costs again, from 10% of revenue to 15%.

If they kill of Soma.fm I will be pissed off no end.

U of Michigan Amateur Radio Club weekly Sunday net is at 8:00 p.m. Ann Arbor time on 145.23 (W8UM repeater) or on Echolink.

I refer to this as the "Fix your radio hour" because inevitably there is something wrong with someone's rig that needs adjustment or repair.
