I had my first #HamRadio CW QSO (morst code contact) in 25 years. That 599 perfect signal report felt like the best news all day, despite the short distance. Today Arch Street, tomorrow the world!

I look forward to my first #ARRLFD since getting back into #HamRadio after 25 years. I will operate 1D from my QTH, an apartment in Philadelphia running QRP into a magnetic loop sitting by my bedroom window.

Does anyone know about automatic magnetic loop antenna controllers? They may hold the key to fulfilling my dream of getting back on HF from within my city apartment. #HamRadio

There’s already a blueprint for a more accessible internet. If only designers would learn it.
Merry Christmas! Last night I watched It's a Wonderful Life, described for the blind by George H.W. Bush! Of course I went into full #MST3K mode immediately. "Not gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent."
Happy Solstice! Sorry I didn't say it sooner, I had a cold.
