If you read my blog and no longer see your blog link on my blog, and for anyone who uses my blog to go to other blogs I follow and was using my link list, I mistakenly zapped it last night when I was removing links to blogs that no longer exist. I will be rebuilding the list over the next few nights.

|No wonder I have not been writing. Needless to say Mrs. M has been getting quite angry over my clutter.|
|I did organize my radio desk. Does that count?|
The Drake 7-Line is almost complete. I need to get a CW-75 keyer to replace the MFJ sitting on the external VFO. In 2017 I hope to get the L-7 amplifier just so I have one. I did not want to spend the money to get the one on Ebay last week for a great price and it was like new. It even had made in USA Eimac finals in it!
Mrs. M would have killed me since I recently had a TenTec 422 from my friend's dad's estate follow me home.
I am planning a post on my radio blog on the Drake and my friend's dad. He was one of my ham radio elmers and is now a SK. Silent Key. When we move on to our eternal ham radio shack whether or not we still use the Morse Code we are still a Silent Key.
Funny how there are different terms for different losses in Radio and TV. Radio stations that go off the air as many daytimers did; they become silent. TV stations that go off the air; they go dark.
How do we describe the demise of AT&T and the Bell System? AT&T as we know it is no longer the mighty communications giant they once were. It all started before SBE communications bought them. Remember the lopsided stupid decision with MCI?
|This is one of the amplifiers I am going to modify. I got it last year and thought I'd have it on the air by Thanksgiving 2015. Almost by this Thanksgiving, but we have other plans.|
|There is a saying that one must get the clutter out of their life to be happy. I would if I had room for things!|
|Too much junk!!!! NO! Radios and typewriters everywhere. It is only junk to the uninformed.|
|This is all the damage at our house from the hurricane.|
