My first post from a longtime blogger in other venues. Discovered Hamsphere after quite a while away from radio – with no television presently, it is something to listen to and keep contact with the outside world. I’ve already had a few QSOs as of Dec 18, 2012.
I didn’t get back on before Christmas as things at home were very rushed and then traveled to be with family for Christmas. My grandson’s Christmas present was influenza. For a while after that, I haven’t been able to talk a lot without getting hoarse. It’s getting better and I should be back on in a few more days.
