Whooo boy!

Another heat wave is coming, just in time for the Independence Day holiday weekend. The forecast is for temperatures in the upper 80s (31C) tomorrow and Saturday; but then, beginning Sunday, it will be in upper to mid 90s (36C) for all of next week! The NWS has issued a Heat Advisory for Sunday through at least next Wednesday.

It feels like Summer came fast this year and with a vengeance! But this is my favorite time of year; and I would rather deal with this than shoveling snow any day of the week!

For those of you who live here in the States, the NWS is taking a survey of the products and services that they offer. If you use the National Weather Service at all, either via RF or computer, or if you're active in SkyWarn - here's a link to the survey:

It takes all of about 10 minutes or so to complete.

I am looking forward to the upcoming long weekend. I really hope to get some "on air" time, preferably somewhere outside with either the PFR3A or K1. There's no rain in the forecast for over the weekend; so maybe Sunday or even Monday (I'm off) might present an opportunity. When the weather gets wild and woolly, sometimes the bands tend to open. It would be nice to experience some good openings.

All I have to do is get through tomorrow at work. Unfortunately, right now that's looking like a tall order.

BTW - added a new blog to the list. Check out "The Boring Ham Radio Part" which appears to the right. This is written and maintained by Bill Coleman, who I have worked in many a Sprint and Fox Hunt.
