Breakfast was nice! Thanks to all for the fun company.

What happened to me? That road is no fun to ride. I bailed.
Besides, I just couldn't bring myself to join a group shopping trip! *Laughs*

Been a year since this HRO breakfast. Anyone need to do a run? How about Saturday 5/22, make it an annual event.


Plus I have a bunch of external speakers to give out to people still.

I'll have to skip. I'll be with Groucho tuning my 20m antenna on my 857d in the 40.

Dave I lost my antenna, just the wire part not the mount. If I pay them can you grab it and I will pick it up from you? I want to get the better one than I had if possible, do you remember the one I got? Think it was like yours.

Anyway let me know and I will call them and pay for it.

What time will you guys be OTA? We can listen for you. It's too bad I'm slow and behind, otherwise I would have this Elecraft T1 ATU kit done by then and we could try a QRP/P contact as Leiniesred and I sip coffee at the Breakfast King as a test. But alas, by Saturday that ain't happening (we could try 6m USB, though, if you want).

That reminds me of another weekend project, winding a matching network/balun for an antenna, since I should have 24 feet of 6063 Al tubing here by tomorrow. Add eight ferrite beads, 10 feet of 12AWG wire, a SO239 and a stud (besides yours truly) and BINGO! you gotcha a 3-30MHz no-tuner needed antenna. Only 6dB (tisk-tisk) of loss for such widebandedness, but a tuner eats up a lot of RF matching to a random wire, too. Sure, compared to a 120 foot long dipole losing 2 S-units blows, but the thing might weigh 8 lbs when I'm done and will collapse down to 6'. My neighbors won't hate me, either.

Sure, Tom, I can grab you a replacement whip. You just need the skinny part with the coil in the middle, right? You have the base with the ferrule and set-screw still?

Lindsay might come too. She's always up for breakfast, but not always up for early departures on bicycles!

Let's see. Same place and the time of 0830 MDT?
