Now that the holidays are in the bag, it's time to start running full steam ahead with a new year of work, projects, school, volunteerism or whatever else takes up your time (or if you're like me, a little of all the above!)
Rather than write resolutions this year, I decided to point out the fact that, just like a large portion of hams, at any given time I have several unfinished projects. There was a time when this would make me completely bonkers, but I've really come to terms with it, and now view it as having many opportunities to work on things when I have some free time. With that thought in mind, here are my "opportunities" that I'm starting 2018 with, that all of you will get to follow along with as time marches on throughout this next year - enjoy!
Current status: dry-walling
started project: way back here
Current status: in-use, but always in progress
started project: also, way back here
Crowd Sourced Project
Current status: ready to start mounting hardware
started project: a few months ago
Current status: 5wpm. Haven't made a CW contact for a couple months.
Started project: when I started activating parks, post NPOTA
Little Helper's Analyzer
Current Status: not done. My little helper and I are working on building the HR360 AA project when we get time, and when her little brother isn't around to try and steal the parts.
Started Project: I'd have to check my Digi-key receipt.....
The semi-secret, somewhat radio related project
Current status: In the garage. I gave sneak peeks on Instagram a while back, but still need to put on the finishing touches, and then explain what it is and how it's radio-related.
Started project: Sometime around my YL's last birthday.
The Secret Project
Current Status: Yes, it's still going on - but this one I insist on finishing before I share. It will (someday) be a series of posts, back-to-back
Started project: Scared to admit how long ago at this point....
Those things alone are enough to keep me busy for the next 12 months, but I'll invariably end up picking up another project or two along the way, so I hope you'll check back often to see what I'm up to (and maybe even give your input and advice!)
So for now, I'm out - catch you later!
