Roadrunner RV Park


Driving west on I-40 this morning in Oklahoma.  It was the worst fog I had ever driven in and was a bit terrifying.  My thoughts were "do I slow down and risk getting hit from behind or do I keep my speed up (about 55) and risk running into somebody in front of me that has slowed down.  Plus I was pulling a travel trailer so my distance needed to stop was increased.

Thomasville, NC

Now I am in Thomasville, NC for a 3 month contract.  It is much more peaceful here and with far less traffic than what I experienced in Manassas, VA over the last 3 months.

Manassas, Virginia

Here I am in Manassas, Virginia just outside of DC.  I am getting ready to start a 13 week work assignment at Novant Prince William Medical Center in Manassas.
My first meal here in town was a wonderful chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and veggies.

Computer Control

After some trial and error, I managed to link my computer to my transceiver for computer control of the radio.  Works great.

Official today as per the FCC.  My new radio call sign is KM4OLR (kilo mike four oscar lima romeo).  My primary interest is morse code so I will be on the air tonight practicing my code.  The picture below is my Bencher Iambic paddle for sending Morse.
