Welcome to the world, Blog Molly, Molly Blog. Now who is who here?!
And the family photo, sprinkles with a rare "allow the boy to pet me" to be fair it was like 85F so the cat was too hot to move.
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!

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!
