Oh yeah, I repaired a $10 chinese made alarm clock that belonged to my father-in-law before he passed away. Got inside the thing and realized he had paid too much! Anyway, I got it fixed and since it runs on a "C" battery and I like the way it sounds when it rings, now it goes into my "ever growing pile of stuff that goes in the camper"

Got on the air for the first time as a portable from the RV. Just working the 2 meter repeaters in an area about 50 miles from home. Had those torrential rains you were talking about, no joke! 2 inches in less than 30 minutes.

Keep RV'n Mac

Hey Mac! Welcome to the ORR.net...was that first time ever or first time portable? You'll find an RV makes a great hamshack. Jump in and join the frey!

I spent Sat in storm spotter training, 8-4, what fun. Then I had to drive through heavy rain for 30 miles to get home. Yuk. I've spent Sun and Mon working on my remodeling project, now I get to rest as we are looking for ice and sleet for the next few day's so I can't go outside and cut the wood I need.

At least its something to do when I'm not working. (ie telephone not ringing)

Thanks, Radio, Just the first time portable. Not real sure that 20,000 pounds in motion is the best ham shack!! Will grow into it, I guess.

Great site, keep up the good work.

Keep on RV'n Mac

It doesn't have to be "in motion" to be a great shack.

As for the weekend, and since then, just being a couch potato (as instructed), after receiving cardiac stents last week, and the week before. They did me in two hits, since the dye is so harmful on the kidneys, and I have a kidney transplant.
