November PBMME

I will not be able to operate in the Polar Bear event today. My Marine Corps turned 234 years old on November 10th and we are celebrating tonight. The birthday ball is a time honored tradition amongst Marines and is ALWAYS a good time!

So while I toast one (or more) to the Marine Corps tonight, I will make sure to sneak one in for all of you guys out on the ice shelf. Best of luck and 72!

Hurricane Ida

Hurricane Ida is due to hit some time tonight. My house is in the area of the Northeast quadrant of the storm. I don't believe that it will be too bad but never the less.

I will have my Sierra setup in the garage. I have a 40M dipole in the attic for this specific purpose. She does not run much power and the antenna is not the greatest but it is something.

I do not have a 2M rig in the house so in the event that power/phones go out I will be using that setup as my communication means. Please consider monitoring 7.040+/- because this is where I will be in the event of any emergency communication needs.

Best of luck and see you when the dust settles.
