The weekend a day early

Not much radio going on for me this past week. I checked into the St. Max net on Sunday evening on 75 Meters, but that's been about it. I've come home from work each evening on the exhausted side and have been hitting the sack early. It feels like this final injection that I got for my prostate cancer treatment must have been a double dose or something - it's left me wiped out. I didn't even attend the monthly CERT Training Session last night - I felt there was no way I was going to be able to drive home at 10:00 PM in a wide awake state of mind. Add to the fact that it has been bitter cold from a blast of Arctic air - that alone is enough to wear me down under normal conditions.

The weather is supposed to be nasty tomorrow with some snowfall. The projection for my little corner of the world is 4 -6 ", which in and of itself is no big deal. But shoveling may prove to be a bit difficult as I tire very easily right now. We'll see what happens.

So - for the coming weekend:


North American QSO Party, SSB -

ARRL January VHF Contest -

Run for the Bacon QRP Contest -

Hungarian DX Contest -

Classic Exchange, CW -
