Well here’s where i’ll be posting for the foreseeable future about my ham radio adventures and whatnot. I had a blog site a while back but just didn’t have time to keep it updated.
Many things will be happening over the next few months ( Hopefully ). The Mrs. and I have a new house in Orleans ( FN25GL) here is MY task list ( Notice that MY is in caps. There is also the typical Honey-Do list that will take priority but for now here are the things I want to get done before Jack Frost comes around.
- Acquire and install tower.
This is going to be a daunting task as it has to look decent and Ottawa has a Tower Bylaw.
- Install the new IC-7000 in the mobile
This is going to be interesting because I drive an Avalanche. Not much room for radios up front hence why I had to go with a remote head HF radio. Thankfully there is a ton of room under the read seats to get everything mounted. A 102″ whip attached to the rear hitch should do the trick for getting on the air with a lovely LDG IT-100 Tuner.
- Setup the home shack.
I have an ICOM IC-821 U/V AllMode Base as well as a full compliment of scanners.
So for now that’s MY list of things to do.
