Next Year.

I have decided that I am going to stay away from my computer for the remainder month of December.

I will return in January 2012.

Have a Happy Holiday, and Happy New Year and I will see you again in the new year.

Norm, KI7UP, Scottsdale Arizona.




Write A Blog.

This is the second time I have sat down in front of my computer thinking I was going to write a blog for ARN.

Now that I think about it, this is actually the 5th time this week I have been here.   But right now is the only time I have actually got the fingers dancing on the keyboard.

But the subjects I was going to write about, being on the air last week, and what I’m looking for in a VHF/UHF handheld don’t want to come out of my brain.

There locked up there and I don’t have the key.  Maybe I should try bribing myself.  Works in Washington.  Oh, sorry, that’s SEX.

7 Days.

Here it is only 7 days away from Christmas Eve.

The Picture is one I took on 12/08/2010, at the Desert Botanical Garden that is between Scottsdale and Phoenix.

I wish that I could tell you that KI7UP will be on the air for Christmas 2010, but let’s be realistic.

It’s not going to happen.

Unless there is one of you out there who right this minute is reading ARD and has an extra HF or not being used VHF/UHF Handheld that needs a happy new home for Christmas.   Maybe one that wants to come to the US.

I’m giggling a little as I write this, knowing that most if not all of you who do read ARD, are saying to yourselves, ” This guy is into the Christmas Bottle, a little soon”.  ( Don’t worry, I don’t drink, and there are no bottles…other than maybe a Coke or two, in the house.)

Maybe by next Christmas…and doing it on my own.

(Course if you could figure a way to drop an antenna on the house…I would not object.)

Have a surprise for you next Friday.
