I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaack

I didn’t intend for it to be several weeks between posts, but a lot has been going on. I have scribbled down some notes and will try to get caught up on things as the summer progresses.

This past weekend was amateur radio Field Day. I spent some time in Nicholasville with the Jessamine Amateur Wireless Society (JAWS). They had quite an extensive setup with big antennas and lots of radios and computers. One guy has some small towers that he keeps around just for Field Day. He owns a bucket truck which makes erecting the towers and installing the antennas a lot easier. One of the JAWS members put up 1200 feet of wire antennas. I got a chance to meet some guys I had worked on the air, and renewed some acquaintances from long ago.
