Today was a great day to stay inside in SE MN: windy, overcast, temp in the 30s and snow in the forecast.
The first Tuesday of the month is informal meeting day at W0IBM, Rochester, MN. ( see http://www.w0ibm.org/ ) I took along my K1 as show and tell. 20 wasn't real active but I hooked up to the W0IBM three element yagi and managed a contact with George, KF4UCC, in Chesapeake, VA.
On the 815 transmitter front I've done a rough layout to help orient tube sockets and studied the dimensions a bit more. It still looks like it will fit. I'm just about ready put the drill to that virgin chassis.
