Low Radioactivity Lately

Holidays, work and poor weather and band conditions have all led to a period of low radio time for me since about Thanksgiving. What spare time I have has been devoted to working to get a 3D printer operational. I am looking to use this to build components for antennas. My activities on 3D printing can be seen at my bonobots blog. Aside from this I did manage to test the DC-DC converter to run the Gateway netbook from 12V battery power. Worked great! This will allow portable digital operations.

I got notification that I am on the class roster for the winter CW academy classes. I signed up for this several months ago as there is a waiting list. The classes begin in January and run for 6 weeks and is basic CW training using the Koch method. I need to find a CW paddle for the class. The class is a true class in that we meet online using Skype and video and basically all train at the same time twice a week.
