This past Saturday was the baby shower. Stephanie wasn’t too sure when it was going to be – just that it would be soon – but we had enough diversions all over the place that she didn’t know for sure that it was Saturday. Things went smoothly, and now our living room is full of stuff. Maybe in the next week we can move things around and find our floor again :>
On Sunday, I also checked off an item from my long-term to-do list. Mostly, anyway. Got the 2m groundplane antenna that I plan on using for APRS mounted on the garage peak, and the coax run from the shack out to it. Just need to solder the end on the coax inside the house, and the project will be completed. But when I finished up last night, I didn’t feel like doing anything more with it, so the coax just got coiled and stuck into the passthrough box for later. Hopefully it’s tuned properly for somewhere around 144.390, and I don’t have to get back up there to retune it or anything. Especially since I’d have to undo all the tape and lower it foot by foot to get to the antenna again. Oh well.
