Re: Today I mostly .....

Dropped a HP C3000 blade enclosure on my foot. To be fair, it fell out the rack and missed my steel toe cap by 10mm and hit my left big toe right on the joint...needless to say, I said ouch.. Luckily for me it wasn't fully populated.

Looks a good bit of kit.

Serviced the Tohatsu 3.5hp Two-Stroke, pumping water better than before.
Almost time to sell it on.

Re: Today I mostly .....

Well yesterday, with assistance, we installed a SQBM1000N Tri-Band antenna to the side of the house. So now have 50mhz, 144mhz and 433mhz within one antenna.....Just need a radio capable of doing 50mhz now.

So that's now, Tri-band antenna, scanner antenna, HF end fed long wire.
