My ride to work this morning on the north slope of Alaska... but too windy today, blowing snow has reduced vis too much. Waiting out the storm.

Recently been poking around with photoshop and stuff, and I learned how to make spacey planet pictures.

Because they're too high resolution, here's some links to the two i've made so far.

I'm really proud of them!!

Cool!

I've wanted to mess around with APRS for a while now but haven't got the gear for VHF APRS, thinking of giving APRS over PSK63 on HF a try.

Yes, that big metal capacitor. It's probably
safe, but short it with a screwdriver to make
sure.

Melles Griot head lasing a little bit. Unfortunately the Vanadate on both units is cracked, I'll need to find a replacement. Both KTPs + Pumps are still good though, perhaps not quite up to factory spec, but still useful. Will probably use them as parts or find a way to stick a larger piece of coated Vanadate in there.
