ULS Still Down (to the surprise of nobody familiar with government)
In case you weren't aware, the FCC took down the ULS site for upgrades and it was expected to be offline for the extended labor day weekend, but, since this is the federal government we're talking about, it turned out about as well as you would expect. From...

US-based BridgeCom producing sub-$100 220 MHz HT
These days there are a lot of handy-talkies (HTs) being produced from China that are selling like crazy because in part they are so inexpensive. It caters to the amateur radio operator on a budget. I myself own 4 and purchased 8 for some kids in my daughter...

New URL for this blog: K4HSM.com
Just an FYI, I've finally took the plunge and reserved K4HSM.com to be used for this weblog. At least for now. I've considered revamping into a completely different website but that's a long ways off at this time. KHAOS.net still works, it will simply forwa...

My Tennessee QSO party activity (or what should've been!)
Well, I WAS supposed to participate mobile during the Tennessee QSO Party this past Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, the stars bounced out of alignment and a number of things conspired to prevent my quest from being fulfilled. Just after work on Friday, ...

Hamvention 2015 - 16 years in the making

1500' climb straight up (filmed from a quadcopter)
How many tower climbers does it take to change a light bulb? Only one...with bigger brass ones than I have: The view, taken via a quadcopter RC remote, gives an amazing view of what it's like climbing a (now defunct analog) TV tower in South Dakota to chang...

Came and tuned our piano for our daughter to practice while at home. Matt was on time, polite, and knowledgeable about our type of piano and gave advice on care and maintenance.

Room was $10 more than the online advertised price. Room was also right next to Del Prado Blvd and every vehicle was loud through the paper-thin walls. Wifi never worked on the 2 devices I attempted to use. Remote control for TV was broken. But the biggest problem for me was the airborne dust or some allergens in the room. The room must not have been used for some time (can't imagine why!) and when I got in the room my nose became stuffed up, my eyes watered, my head and body ached, and I began coughing. I thought I was coming down with a virus because I had just flown in that afternoon and felt under the weather. I didn't have anywhere near a good night's sleep. I slept no more than 30 mins at a time, tossing and turning in between the hacking/coughing/sneezing and the traffic on Del Prado, which I discovered doesn't slow down at all even at 4am. After I got up/gave up trying to sleep at about 7am I showered and left. No one dared ask how my stay was. I guess they knew already. But, as soon as I left that room, all my problems were gone. Headache gone, coughing gone, sneezing no more, nose cleared up. But now my voice is gone and hasn't come back and it's now going on 6 days since I stayed there. I've NEVER had issues with allergens in hotels before but I'm certain that something in that room was making me sick.
