Hammin It up

We got our Ham license this last weekend. I took the test for a tech, and Brian took tech and general. We have an Icom 725, which I thought was SSB but is a strait up Ham. We do not have an antenna rigged yet, so still looking at options. Brian is making a radio cabinet this next weekend.
Will update when installed 

Took the armature radio test over in Burnet, Texas. Drove Buttercup to Inks Lake State Park right outside Burnet, but didn't get a chance to look around. The HAM Folks were really nice and very knowledgable. We are going to pop up there in a month or so for an open house. Pretty cool aye? Bunch of nerds talking Propagation and solar storms :-).

This weekend we will be aboard Rain Dog. We hope to construct the frame for our composting head. I'll spare you the details, actually, I won't spare you :-). Will post when project complete, so gird your loins, we're gonna talk about poo.
