AM'er's delight, last night, on 3880kHz!
« on: August 19, 2023, 1834 UTC »
With this rare cooler-spell, for SW WV, and C2C AM not being anything that I'd want to care about, (Sorry Connie Willis, but I'm pretty much Big Footed out.), I'd thought that I'd try putting the W.O.G. to the 'ol Sangean AST-803A portable, at bedside, and crash-out to that. And??? Lightning crashes were in there, but not pegging the "S" meter, like what's been the norm this Summer 2023. 'W5'-land was very much alive with a great roundtable of dudes from TX, LA, and AS, from about 02:00UTC to about 05:45UTC, when everyone signed-off for the night. If I wasn't too tired from working outside, until dark, I probably would have joined them. Anyway, a neat, and rare Summer AM treat for sure. Probably won't hear these conditions again, until like October. 
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
