Knobs – Human and otherwise

It’s Sunday morning and after a Friday night power yoga class that damn near killed me I keep forgetting I’m in my 60s.

Tried to pick up a 35-year-old fellow student in my yoga class which was going pretty well until Marion walked over and hit me with my rolled up matt. Okay that didn’t happen but it could have.

BTW and this comes from the book Younger Next Year which was highly recommended to me by my buddy Mike, VA3MW: Do you know what happens when a beautiful young woman looks at a man like me? She sees the wall behind me. How sad and true but how wonderful I have a wife who understands my ageing mind and where I put my attention.) so now I’m sipping my coffee feeling pretty zany and replying to tons of emails.

One of the best emails of the morning comes via VA3MW about what you can do with a SDR. If you’re not up on software-define radio you will be as this is the way of the future. Anyway to see how much fun you can have designing hardware interfaces to the SDR have a look at SOFTWARE DEFINED HAM RADIO blog where W9OY offers us another excellent posting.

As for the human knobs…I’m still reading through my emails and that’s coming next!
