Talked to Steve Jonas-K4SDJ Today

I talked to Steve today for the fist time since he was hospitalized on July 3rd. He sounded good. He's in a normal room now and the doctors think he may be able to go home in the next week or so. Praise God. He asked me to go over to his house and disconnect power from his radios and disconnect feedlines from his antennas. We've had some severe weather in the area and he wanted to be sure that everything was isolated while he's away. I should have thought of that before but he's good to go now.

New Generator

Got a brand new Honeywell HW2000i 2000 watt generator thanks to my good friend Ted The Bargain Hunter - KJ4EGZ. Got it for about 30% of normal retail price. Thanks Ted. Now I get to see just how much of my Command Center I can power with it. Come on hurricane season.

Checked into W4MM Weekly 2 Meter Net

While down in Valdosta on business/pleasure tonight I checked into the Monday night Albany Amateur Radio Club 2 Meter Net from the Valdosta Amateur Radio Club repeater via the Tall Pines Intertie. This is the club the Dr. Gene-W4AYK (Georgia ARES SEC) belongs to and he was on the net. I also checked in back in Savannah on the 146.700 repeater via the W4SGA Echolink Node. Had a nice QSO with Robert-KJ4HAL.
