Good morning Kitty.  -7 here, likely lower before dawn.  I went to the hamfest.

Didn't find what I wanted but did get some useful stuff.  Got a Tektronix oscilloscope,

4 channel, 150 Mhz, I think.  $50 was a good deal on that and seems to work well.  Got

a digital multi-meter for $10 but doesn't work well.  Will take the cover off and see if

it's easy to fix, if not a small loss.

Looks like I will be calling a friend of mine for help getting the vhf amplifier to work and

get it tuned in at the frequency I want to use it on.

We have this snow storm coming tonight.  7 to 12 inches and gets heavy with light rain if

not removed.  Started my tractor and put winter additive in the diesel fuel.  Ran it down

the driveway and around the lawn. 

The moon was about full and bright last night and still is this morn.

Have a good day Kitty.

Good morning Kitty.  Looks like we have close to a foot of snow.  Few more hours of

snow likely so no rush to clean it up.  Guess I will go ahead and exercise indoors and

use the tractor for snow removal.  Almost noon before it's supposed to stop for the

most part. 

My friend wasn't able to help me to much on my amplifier but talking to him pointed

me in a direction to investigate so still on my way.

Hooked the scope I bought to the output of a radio and was able to display the signals

so looking up for that piece of equipment.

I had decorated the bay window with a heart with a string of red lights for Valentines but

it didn't look like a heart from outdoors, just looked good indoors.  So bought a heart on

ebay with lights built in and looks much better.  Just ran the string of red lights along the

bottom of the window. 

Don't think you are getting this snow over east, looked like rain for you all.

Enjoy the day.

Good morning Kitty.  Light wind from the north this morning, 21 degrees.

Parked my Baja near the road, dug it out of the snow with a shovel and got

groceries.  Cleaned the rest of the driveway with the backhoe later.  We've

had light snow most of the time since and still snowing now.  I will clean it up

with the shovel. 

Have a nice day.
