Getting excited for spring weather!

With the spring fast approaching, I am finally getting excited. This means that I will finally be able to put up my old 80m inverted V antenna (for use with my receiver) and my newly built J-Pole. I also have a 2m loop that needs to be installed. This will give me much greater range for VHF / UHF. I also plan on getting on to some more digital modes such as APRS (via RF) and packet.

I finally joined my local club again after about 14 years of inactivity . There’s been a lot of interest in digital modes lately and our club has installed two APRS nodes (using scrounged up equipment) and packet is coming back online as well. As you can probably tell, I am quite excited to get back into the hobby.

Also, one must not forget that spring means BASEBALL! Go Blue Jays!

73 for now.
