We received a really nice package in the mail yesterday. Friends of my daughter who lives in far north queensland grow and dry their own pepper. So they sent us down a small packet to try. LOL small packet my arse, they sent down close to 500 grams, there is enough pepper in this vacuum pack to last us 2 years at least and then some.
So Ashar Farhan the legend has brought out a new Bitx radio, the uBitx, its 10w multi band rig, with CW and SSB. I have one on order and should see it I hope before Christmas. Its going to be my permanent portable radio. I am going to sell off the FT897 and just use this for portable. Kind of excited.
Its summer time here and as most of our garden is on the western side of the house, its going to get hammered with the summer heat. We are not expecting things to go all that well, but we planted some corn, beans, beatroot and tomatoes. If we can get things established before we get the next heat wave things should be fine.
