A Beacon of Hope

The fruits of my labor on Labor Day were that I now have a 10-meter beacon on the air. It will generally be on continuously except for when storms are forecast. It is on 28226.8, running 5 watts to a ground-mounted Gap Eagle vertical. The rig is a Yaesu FT-450AT.

I’m not expecting much from Ohio State and Kentucky in football this year but the teams are a combined 4-0 so far.

Last Saturday, MAC teams visited Columbus and Lexington and led awhile. Kentucky came from a 13-3 deficit to beat Central Michigan 27-13. Slow starts seem to be common since Joker Phillips started coaching here, and it is a problem that needs to get fixed.

Toledo might be the class of the MAC and they gave the Buckeyes a scare. OSU won 27-22 but the Rockets were driving deep in Buckeye territory as the game ended.
