Kidding. Every day is a weekend to me. But not to mom. I just watch her whirl about and do lots of things and work and I just lie there resting so as to be heartbreakingly bewteefuls for her at all times. That's a lot o' work.
A mean old coal company that owns a mountain where my mom's ARRL (Amateur Radio Relay League) HAM club is having its repeater threatened. It was a gentleman's agreement 45 years ago that the club could erect its antenna and repeater up there. They are threatening demolishing our equipment if we don't pay up. They said that mom's club must suddenly start to pay high rent.
HAMS are a public service right along side of it being for serious hobbyists. (takes work to be a HAM and a pretty good test). They threatened to tear down the antenna and the little building where the repeater is housed if we don't come across with money even though they too are benefited by our equipment as they are allowed to use it, as are emergency responders. Hospital and Emergency nets use it too. Kitties and parents will be glad of the HAMS taking over vital communications when cell phone coverage is gone or a tornado or earthquake happens. HAMS are the only communication in a region sometimes Mommy said. Sorries I got up on the sofa top which is my soap box. Any of you all a HAM too? Not in silliness, but in radio?
