From earlier:

The first picture is the display of a railroad signalman's desk at the NC Transportation Museum in Spencer NC, circa 1946. (My grandfather was a railroad signalman after returning from World War II).

The second picture is my radio station (in a cluttered state), 80 years on.

What's striking to me is that, though my station has more advanced tech, both stations have the same elements- including the Morse straight key.

There's apparently an unconscious tradition in the family!

Hate to tell you but I inadvertently got US-11248 removed from the map. Oops 🤣

@ai6yr The park is a tract of forest ownwd by NC State University used for education and research. There are no amenities there and it is not open to the public.

Pota.app had a link on the park's page that was clearly AI-generated saying the park was popular for fishing, hiking, and picnicking. None of that is true.

I sent an email to the organizers to let them know, and they pulled the park fron the list (since it's not publicly owned and not open to the public).

Hi folks, I know folks mean well when they post information on news events, but PLEASE vet your sources before reposting dramatic articles/etc. you see. If you're not familiar with the publication, DON'T POST IT. Or check on the source...

For example, I recently saw an article posted from the Daily Caller, which is essentially a channel for white supremacist propaganda, interspersed with other normal news.

@czarbucks @firefly @AE4WX @amyedge @ai6yr Good morning! Still dark in the Glen, but have a symphony of predawn birdies doing their morning coffee klatch. Curio Cabinet finally filled, and more tubs will go downstairs for storage. Am still hanging pictures, and will probably get the bread machine going today, and use some of the honey Ben sent me on a nice honey wheat loaf. Have a GREAT Tuesday Folks!

@czarbucks @firefly @AE4WX @amyedge @ai6yr Good morning! No sleep must be in the air this morning. Tried going to bed twice last night and finally said “screw it” and turned on “The Witcher” and broke down boxes. Too early for squirrel feeding so 2d cup of coffee is on the way. Have a GREAT Wednesday!

@BakerRL75 @czarbucks @firefly @amyedge @ai6yr be safe today! Level 2 risk of severe weather for me and Amy; Level 1 for everyone else but Ben

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Not me! These are the tools I'm throwing at the BIG BAD for this morning's activation. A for , for & for . EXPERIMENTATION is the foundation on which was built.

@AE4WX@mas.to avatar

@N4JAW Okay, that's it, you inspired me. I'm going.

AE4WX,
@AE4WX@mas.to avatar

@N4JAW I haven'r. I checked the SDR first and found nothing. Not even the strong shortwave stations. And man, I only hear a single station on 20 m FT8- and no CW stations at all.

Think I'll find something else to do 🤣

AE4WX,
@AE4WX@mas.to avatar

@N4JAW I am making a few 20m FT8 contacts at least

@N4JAW trying to do POTA today is like Captain Dan railing at the hurricane in Forrest Gump

AE4WX, to climate
@AE4WX@mas.to avatar

Okay, let's get this one out of the way as I see it going around:

The auroras being seen so far south tonight has absolutely nothing to do with . It is caused by multiple coronal mass ejections on the sun in the past few days, which occurred because we are at the peak of the 11-year solar cycle. It has nothing whatsoever to do with climate.

As always, my policy is: post misinformation, you get blocked.

N4DVM thinks this is light pollution- and it may be- but I can't think of anything in that direction

Happy Friday to all of you here in the today!

What is on your agenda for the day and for the weekend ahead?

For me, the wife and I are going to a special Winston Salem Dash baseball game tonight. It's our first one. They are the A team for the Chicago White Sox. Hoping to have a great time tonight.

Not much else planned outside of work stuff for a bit today and the weekend we don't have anything planned as of yet.

@cliffwade The Dash are A ball- but fun to watch!

@AE4WX@mas.to avatar

@cliffwade I would venture that the Dash are more fun to watch right now than the Sox are.
