Moving along…

It’s been too hot to do much in my shack.  I need to finish putting up a wall and covering it with drywall then hanging a door so I can work on insulating the room.  I have an air conditioner installed in the window but it’s been over 90 degrees so often and with the high humidity, it’s been tough even thinking about leaving the comfort of air conditioning in the house.  Monday I am ordering the plastic base piece for my Mosley RV-4C so I can get it set up and get back on the air again.  Unfortunately the “hamstick dipole” is a rather poor antenna for anything other than 40 meters.  It works but I’m afraid that it’s just a lost cause.  Hopefully with the change of seasons, I’ll be able to move quickly and get the shack set up in time for winter.  It’s very small so I can heat it easily and spend more time in there.

Once I finish the room, I’d like to start working on getting caught up on all of the QSL cards I need to send out.  I have several years’ worth of cards I want to get out.  Unfortunately I have some gaping holes in my logbook and I will try to correct that.  If you are needing a QSL from me, please let me know!  I am starting a new logbook once I get the room finished and I’m hoping I’ll keep much better logs this time around…
