Summer Is Here

June 16, 2013

Summer has arrived as we have had some hot and humid days. I like summer better than winter but it is not my favorite season :-).

In sports, the big news here is the amazing recruiting that new UK football coach Mark Stoops has been doing. Kentucky’s recruiting class is ranked in the top 10 in most national polls. It will be interesting to see if the team can execute this fall when the season starts.

I have begun building a small solar power system that will initially power much of my garage and recharge the battery in my lawnmower. If it works as well as I hope, I may be able to power some of the things in the house with it as well.

Hams know this time of year as “sporadic-E season” and there has been a lot of short-skip on the higher bands.
