Last time I had a physical the doctor looked at my chart, shook
his head and said, "Hmmm, it looks like you're 69. I'd like to get
that down a little."


In my first JARTS I sent 66 and now it's crept up to 69.  Not an
encouraging trend and everyone can follow it in their logs. So much for 
medical privacy.

The project this weekend was to revive my basement 80/40m station and its
antenna (a "perverted L" jammed into my small back yard)
which I haven't used since the ARRL RTTY RU in January. The station is 
a conglomeration of discards which would have been fine in
the late, great 20th century but is a bit long in the tooth now. I 
found a chopped radial to repair and had to buy some new cables and 
chokes and generally clean up and reorganize. It's an OK CW setup, 
but nothing to write home about for RTTY and SSB.

I spent enough time on 80 and 40 to test things, but those weren't the 
happenin' places this weekend.  10m was where it was at. I did a 15m single 
band operation in the WW RTTY three weeks back and wasn't able to  
experience the ressurrection of 10m then, so I gave it a whirl now.  What 
a blast! Once I got started, I couldn't stop. There were JAs all over the 
place Saturday evening. I haven't worked a JA on 10m since early 2002.

I hope things continue in this vein. I'm excited about the new 10m RTTY
contest in December. We could have a real treat in store.

Kermit, AB1J
