Ham Radio - KK7ARH

Yesterday, I took the HAM radio exams for Technician and General status, and passed both. I have to wait a few days to receive my callsign, and then I'll be able to converse upon the amateur radio waves, and partake in interesting technologies, such as APRS.
Growing up, my dad had a plethora of radios/communication devices: business radios in our vehicles, a 100' radio tower in our backyard, shortwave radios for backcountry flying, walkie talkies, handheld ham radios, CB radios, airplane radios, a radio telephone bridge, a radio telephone in his Jeep, remote audio and video transmission, and probably several other things I can't recollect. I remember visiting mountain top lookouts and testing radio connections. Many fun memories.

Aeron Remastered


I've been working from home for quite some time, and have worn out my office chair. I've gone through a couple in the last two decades, so decided to get a higher quality chair and went with the Aeron Remastered. Pretty excited about it.

Reading - February 2021

While I was sick with the Corona virus, I had some time to read. And read through Mistborn, by Brandon Sanderson. The book was well written, and makes a well rounded story in a single book. Though the book begins a trilogy.

Covid 19

All the precautions were for naught; I caught the Corona virus. It wasn't too bad, I started off with some zinc when I had an initial fever. The fever was very slight and only two degrees Fahrenheit above my normal, for only three hours. I then had a headache, and muscle pain for three days, and developed a light cough. Six days after my fever, I lost my sense of smell, but retained my sense of taste. I've been released from quarantine by the Center for Disease Control. I was isolated from the family into two rooms for over a week, so it's nice to be free again.

Reading - 2020 into 2021

I've recently finished reading the Lightbringer series, by Brent Weeks. Several book comprise the series: The Black Prism, The Blinding Knife, The Broken Eye, The Blood Mirror, and The Burning White

Before the Lightbringer series, I read the The Last Druid, by Terry Brooks. The supposedly last in the line of the Shannara novels. And before that was working on The Once and Future King, by T.H. White. The Once and Future King has been heralded as a cornerstone of Fantasy literature, but I've only made it a quarter of the way through.

Also read the book Creation Unfolding: A New Perspective on Ex Nihilo, by my friend, Dr. Ken Coulson. An excellent book that presents a perspective that reconciles some of the disparities between scientific perception and faith.
