In a burst… nay, an outburst of energy, I have resurrected the Low Power Hour from moth-balls (moth balls are very tiny) and begun returning it to the Part 15 world.
Along with this I started contacting affiliates who carry the LPH and reached many of them. Others have been set aside for day after tomorrow.
At the moment I’ve been temporarilly diverted into other business because the local town sent an “anonymous” survey which takes 1-hour to complete, and when I didn’t respond immediately they sent a reminder ONE WEEK LATER! That’s the equivalent of tailgating and horn-honking.
But think, if it was anonymous, how did they know which address hadn’t responded?
At the same time the gas company sent a letter demanding an indoor “pipe inspection” as per safety policy, and I spent 45-minutes on the phone listening to hypnotic boredom music until I was finally able to speak to a human.
But wait. As I’ve written about, the electric service right by the workbench/gas meter has been down due to old house wiring gone bad, so I spent Sunday re-constructing the circuit inch-by-inch for maximum safety, and finally got the area lit.
The double advantage of light at the workbench is that the Big Talker Shortwave Transmitter is awaiting installation in metal cabinetry so we can restart the KDX shortwave station.
Now I’m pre-occupied thinking maybe I should buy Tim a C.Crane FM2 Transmitter for field testing, but the other hand is waving me down.
Don’t forget the outdoor antenna planned for the far back yard where a 40-foot dead elm tree needs to come down first, but the tree service I asked to do it has avoided me ever since they saw it, and I need to get that tree down before the next wind storm or the neighbors might meet their demise when 70-tons of wood comes lopping down on them.
I could save time by not writing these lengthy blogs, but always know this: procrastination is the greatest nation in the world.
