So, I've been a bit focused (possibly read: obsessed), as this week I dropped a fair chunk of money on radio equipment, most of which arrived in dribs and drabs over the course of the week, and then today, when plans changed, I got to start unboxing it. I can't get on the air just yet (antenna's still en route), but everything is pretty well unboxed and has been tested as far as I can.
However, this also means I have not yet spent time I should have spent breaking up Chapter 4 of Things Fall Apart to schedule to publish here. I hope to do so tomorrow, but if I don't, then Chapter 4, Part 1 will post whenever I get it done, rather than waiting for the following Monday. Parts after that will go back to the every-Monday cadence.
I will also, of course, have a deep-dive write-up of what I bought, why I bought it, and what I was able to do with it without a transmit-capable antenna.
I've got some musings running through my head that are not related to either radio or the story, but they're still just butterflies fluttering by and not really solid, yet.
Thank you all for being here!
