Getting Back on Track

I started off strong - really, I did. When I first retired, I had the strength of 10. But, as the summer passed, I lost my Mojo.

I didn't manage to check-in with the Ham Radio NET today, but I did re-set my radio for the local repeaters (I had used the local ones in Cincinnati while traveling). I'm going to use my unassigned time for the EclipseMob receiver setup and testing. I need to get another capacitor for that.

Today (Wednesday, August 9), I have completed several future blog posts, started with a healthier breakfast, and made some plans for today.

How do you eat an elephant?
