We talked mostly about Thanksgiving and family and friends. Tasteless food. And tasty food like strawberry rhubarb pie and apple pie. Happy 78th birthday to K3WD (yesterday).

In person trip to Ham Radio Outlet. RF noise from electric fences.

K3WD congrats on the FT8 contacts with Algeria (Sahara Amateur Radio Club)
