Hi Steve

I missed my sunset as I had a doctor's appt. I had a bad case of Lyme 
Disease in 2017, and am still taking meds. The doctor was thrilled with 
my recent bloodwork and figures that I have an almost clean slate.  I am 
feeling great for the first time since 2016!  The bad news was the 
appointment was right at sunset so no listening for LP.   I am 
contemplating a low wire antenna. I just need to find a good spot away 
from all the beverages.  You can't have too many antennas.
