I normally hate blog posts like this: just an assortment of excuses why I haven't gotten off my butt and done anything on the blog or whatever. In this case, though, it's been a while since I bothered with the blog, and I don't want it to fall into complete disuse, or appear that it is.
In short, it's been busy. The most obvious reason is that it's the end of December, with all of the holiday commotion that it entails. I've also gotten a new job that I'll be stating in early January at Wayne State University. I actually started applying for one job there, and ended up with one a little higher up the ladder, so I've had to make some trips up there, mess around with paperwork, and so on. Add to that my usual work, and so on, and I just haven't had a whole lot of time for ham radio things, and much of what I did have was dedicated to writing up meeting minutes for the club, since I'm the secretary now.
I haven't been doing much with the hobby lately, but I'll soon change that. I still need to get the HF station going, but I'll probably give satellites another try soon, too. Well, as soon as we start getting more than a blink of daylight, anyway. Right now it's a little hard when the only daylight we get is during working hours. Soon, though.
