|Three weeks since my last QSO. January is traditionally my quiet month. The cold turkey after the December Low Band Madness ;o)
There’s a lot of work to be done here outside of the hobby. Real work. Some paid for a/k/a The Job. Some not paid for a/k/a Chores In and Around the House. These actually cost me money HI. I hope and plan to be back for the UBA DX SSB contest (last W/E of January).
Last Friday I did my first presentation ever. The UBA club of Diest invited me over to talk about N1MMLogger, the world’s greatest (and free!) contest software. I seem to be considered as an ‘N1MM evangelist’ in Belgium, in analogy to the software company’s evangelists. The evening went well and I had good fun. I prepared a presentation but did not rehearse or plan my talking. I didn’t want to beat it to death. I wanted to come across spontaneously and I think I did. I evaluated myself and I’m ready to give it another go. So Belgian clubs: give me a shout!
|Yesterday I was reading K3WWP’s diary. John talked about a movie and provided a link to see it. Clicking that link caused a ‘WTF?’ moment here since the ISP hosting the movie only streams it to US IP addresses. That’s a primer! What’s next?
The FH-bus counter jumped up two numbers this week and dropped down two notches a few days later because the OM had to cancel his plans. Net count back to zero. There was another person interested but he prefers to stay overnight. Sorry chaps, I’m NOT going through the hassle of booking hotel rooms. I think it’s already way too late for that. Every room will already be booked. Remember that there is a massive crowd landing in Friedrichshafen each year for the annual ham fair!
