I have set up the ham radio station in the basement. This involved moving the copper ground buss down there, lengthening the coax to the antenna (a crappy little "apartment-dweller's" special, but whatcha gonna do? The big tree died last year and it's gone, and with it, my sky-hook) and grounding all the equipment. Downloaded Dimension 4 (for precision time-synchronization) and HRD and got that working on the PC along with the interface box to the Yaesu transceiver. And then I listened to W1AW to brush up on my code practice. I'm pathetically slow; need practice. Thank God for context; if they sent random groups I'd be lost!
