Ken came to visit from Seattle so Beard and I took a day off on Friday to go car-camping in Forster.
At my first International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend with the Manly Warringah Radio Society, operating from Barrenjoey Lighthouse. Here is their writeup: http://www.mwrs.org.au/lighthouse-operations/. It was a great experience to stay there for the night.
My electronics doesn’t normally involve a hacksaw, hammer and propane torch but I had fun building this J-pole antenna from instructions by N6JSX.
