Lots of fun at the Deerfield NH Hamfest. Found stuff like this.
I did not buy the 'Round Heavy Things'

I did the sequencing for a couple of robots to serve beer at a company event. This was the first beer served.

I just bought a new camper in FL to drive home to Maine. Not all things go as planned.
End result is OK. Factory Warrantee, free tow, free repair. Just a setback in time. This happened 2 hours into my return trip.

Hurricane nets on 14.325 USB and 7.268 LSB. Not hearing much yet.

The workbench today.
Its a Kantronics All Mode TNC that was just repaired. It works! TNC needed Q11, VR1, VR2 and a couple of caps.

Adamd, Clair, and friends getting an anonymous picture for mastodon. The lady at the end of the table, who was not with our group, was laughing at us.

KAM TNC. Owner said it worked for 30 minutes when he purchased it a long time ago. So far:
LM7805 +5V regulator
LM79L05 -5V regulator
PN2222A NPN GP Transistor
Still waiting for the LM79L05 but if I inject 5V it talks to me via its serial port. A good sign.
Replaced the LM7805 with a DC DC converter.

My newest PC build. 2U chassis, ASROCK 960GC-GS FX, FX-6300, 16G DDR3, 480G SSD, GT1030. The only new components are the 2U chassis and the GT1030.

Missed last night because our clubs Yeasu DR-1X amateur radio repeater died. This picture is our temp setup. Its as bad as it looks. Mobile radio's on an old repeater controller. A pedestal fan provides cooling.

Had a blast with agetty today. Created a serial console at 300 baud and connected. Brought back fun memories. Htop did seem to stop responding though. :) I guess 300 baud isn't enough for htop.
