Gooooooooooooood morning n95 and everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Had a contractor that drove by and saw me working. He knocked on the door and asked what I was doing and had left. He had a project that got put on hold and was looking for something to fill the gap. Looked everything over, shot me a fair price for labor, shook hands and his guys will start Monday. Ive seen his work and he does a great job. And I don’t have to get tendonitis. Pretty happy about it.

Have a sensational day word!

Mudding the joints too?  Then that's a blessing.  I don't mind hanging, even put 12' footers on the ceiling alone with a T bar rig I built. But, when it comes to the seams, I rue the day I have to start.

I can sympathize with RYou. I have a hard time forcing myself to get started if I need to do some repair work on my Ailtech-Eaton 382M synthesized signal generator, which is sitting on a bench at the bottom of a stack of test equipment including an HP 3325A synthesizer/function generator, a Wavetek 5128A frequency synthesizer, a Racal-Dana 1995 universal systems counter, a Systron Donner 114A high power pulse generator, a Power Designs 1520 high voltage calibrated DC power source, and an HP 5370B universal time interval counter--some of which are really heavy and all of which have to be disconnected before I can pull them off the stack.

Huh? I didn't mention any of my radio equipment, if that's what you were asking about.

Finishing tearing out, insulating, hanging, mud, and paint. Everything! I am just hauling furniture to storage to clear everything out.

Have a splendid day word!

No, I only listed items in a stack of test equipment. When I'm ready to try contacting the aliens, I'll have to use some radio equipment, of which I have various kinds but haven't described. The most expensive unit I have with a transmitting capability is the new transponder I recently had to have installed in my airplane. It gives me the ADS-B Out capability without which I would be restricted in the places where I can fly after the government's 1 Jan 2020 deadline for ADS-B Out equipage. But it's useless for contacting aliens. (If you're interested, google ads-b out deadline.)

The cheapest transmitter I have gives me a 433 MHz microwave datalink from a WWVB 60 KHz receiver I built to a retimer/repeater unit in my workshop (my former garage). You can get a 433 MHz transmitter/receiver pair on eBay for $4.87 (free shipping), but it won't do a thing for helping you talk to the aliens.

The only thing I've got for contacting aliens is a Sideband Engineers SB-34 60-watt SSB transceiver. And it will only have a chance of working if the aliens are nearby, say in near-earth orbit.

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood morning everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Multiple stops, every bathroom, convenience store, anything that peaks her interest. She definitely makes it more interesting than just getting from point A to B.

Have a tremendous day word!

Not called, back to the waiting room.  Got to be a better way than having 125 people sitting around waiting for a judge.
