A stormy mid-October

October 14, 2012

The stormy weather that delayed or canceled football games yesterday may hit here today.

Speaking of football, Kentucky continues to struggle mightily. Injuries have decimated an already poor team, so that many inexperienced Freshman and Sophomores are seeing a lot of playing time. Ohio State is still undefeated, but continues to be challenged every game. Last night the Bucks edged Indiana 52-49. You can’t feel too good about your defense if you give up 49 points to the Hoosiers.

I had 394 QSOs in 14 hours in the CQ Worldwide RTTY contest mentioned in last post. Power output was between 60-80 watts. Last weekend I made quite a few QSOs on 10m mobile as we made a trip to Ohio and back. I hope to have pictures of the new mobile installation pretty soon.

Yesterday the KY-QRP club had a field event at the Kentucky Horse Park. The weather was just about perfect. Pictures are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ku4a/sets/72157631768035056/ My setup is the tripod near the red RAV4.

I got to see my friend Sandra’s Nissan Leaf the other day. Here is her blog where she discusses Leaf ownership in detail: http://www.myelectricleaf.com/
