Well.. When you can't sleep I have a suggestion for you 3973

From around 1:30 or 2 am (Formal start time 3am) Eastern to 8am Eastern.. Two back to back nets.. The Before Breakfast Club and, of course what would follow that but the Breakfast Club.

that's 0800 to 1300 Universal Time.

Every morning, 7 days a week.. The one thing we all do is report the current temp. (which was nice and mild this morning where I am)

Of course, that's only for folks who are AWAKE during those hours

Recommendation (If you have a house mate) Headphones!

NOTE: A good notch filter is handy too.. There is an intruder nearby sending digital garbage (not a recoginzed ham format) and .. Well.. they are working on canning him but since it will be an international incident from what I understand it's going to take a while. Either that or a military cryptologist to figure out what they are sending and make it "Common knowledge" then they will naturally move (And change code)

My radio set-up is in the bedroom too. DW wouldn't think much of me being on the radio when I can't sleep.

Well.. Radio in bedroom.. that's why they invented Cans (Headphones)

My radio is in the head...(Well, one of 'em) that way if I have to go during a QSO...I'm there already

I should mentione, the reason I go to the radio room to check into the before breakfast club has NOTHING to do with the radio. But while I'm there.. I might as well check in.
