So its been a long time dream in the works for every ham operator to get a tower in the air. With great cost, I ended up with an antenna from AA7ST-SK. This combined with a tower from my neighbor W7LRD. Brings me to today.. The dry run testing of everything connected on the ground!
Antenna rotor is working awesome, SWR is awesome, all systems go! this weekend I have a man lift on order to put everything on line! and 50ft up!
full details here on the tower project
After a lot of work, we have a new garage! this is also my new ham shack! I added a carport to keep the truck dry as well! yahoo!
So I have been wanting to do this for a while and finally got around to it. I have long looked at the I-Mate but never wanted the price for what it did. So I went about hacking up my own interface and here it is!
The button box has memory keys for contesting as well as a PTT button, frequency up and down buttons, and the switch is to disconnect the MIC from my Heil ProSet Plus, I do this because I run my Rigblaster Advantage directly to the rear accessory port so I don't need to mess with things going digital. However using that port opens the mic on the front jack... this was my workaround!
Schematics pulled from the ICOM manual page 18 and 104
been a while since I posted a cool tool, this tool is nifty. it will allow you toescalate privilege in a command line but also encrypt the username and password forsuch use. lots of fun stuff here. like making it call a batch file then whatever yourun in the batch file will have for example domain admin. but the end user wont actuallyknow the account password.

Today on the water I was "prop washed" by a friend while driving another persons boat.They hit my boat and cracked the stern. Talk about a crazy day. Thankfully it wasnot my fault (as I was not moving at the time nor had engine running) but wow whatdrama. Good to have friends with boats and not own boats!
I just passed all my classroom material for a OpenWater 1 Divers Certificate! nextis the actual dive!
I was looking to fix toe-in on a new drag link I just put in the truck, while typingthis list came on google suggest.
Obviously my first click was the pregnant one, no didnt find any good videos but didfind some funny quotes
"Are you or your partner regularly exposed to hazardous substances in the workplace?You may need to consider a job change or job modification before you start your family.Certain substances can affect both the quality of sperm and the development of theembryo. "
"Make your vaginal environment as sperm-friendly as possible. Avoid vaginal spraysand scented tampons (which can cause a pH imbalance in your vagina); artificial lubricants,vegetable oils, and glycerin (because they can kill off sperm);"
uhmm did they just say vegetable oil? I would be one surprised vegetable after thatexperience!
so after that I clicked the next logical link after trying to find out how to makebabies was find someone to make a baby with - "how to get a girl to like you".. .I'mstill working on this one with katie
the best quote I had here was this.
"Here's some help coming from a girl's POV. If you've noticed that she has graduallybegan to get closer to you, ex: sitting with you at lunch, talking with you more,asking if you want to go do something, or hanging from a tree by herself out sideyour window. she may squawk like a monkey at first. but dont worry, its just a phase."
I can tell you readers . its not a phase my monkey.. .I mean wife, just went on aboutsomething something, money something, where are you! something, look at me when Isquawk at you!
