Having really too many irons in the fire at the moment, finishing up ready-to-post articles just isn’t happening.
Mostly good stuff, just one of those “life bulges” where suddenly at the same time lots of things are moving and need one’s attention.
QSOing is way down too, to something like less than 180 QSO’s per week and 98% digital minimalistic to boot.
Both QTHs also needed to be made winter-ready, and that has gone well with just draining the water out to the main ham workshop & garden so it doesn’t freeze over winter, and getting the snow removal equipment ready for eventual use. All of the summer equipment is sorted, except for the implement company picking up my riding mowers to do a service over while they store them over the winter.
Simultaneous car issues added to the chores, with one car needing to be transported to the dealer to sort out an electrical issue (which of course wasn’t something that warranty would cover, my shop truck needing a new alternator, and the XYL’s car needing a set of tires before the snow comes. Kind of singed the checkbook, but they are now all ready.
Enough of that – I think you get the idea. Long days with plenty of extras to do.
That should break after Thanksgiving – well I am telling myself that to make myself feel better. It will clear soon though!
73 and all the best,
