It was a pretty quiet day today. Chris was slushy, it was still blowing about thirty knots and there was a fair bit of snow blowing about and quite overcast. I sorted out all my emails and made a few phone calls. Jeremy came in with a laptop that wasn't working so I spent a bit of time getting that sorted.
I managed to track down a new ceramic GU84B tetrode for my amplifier from Alex UR4LL in Ukraine for US$390 which is not a bad price since they are now out of production so I ordered one. If I can't get the Quadra operational then I will get this valve sent down on V1 in November.
I had to do a bit of election stuff also. I am the electoral officer and I had to do a bit of paper work for that as well as register myself. I got an email from Mack who came across my blog and saw a photo of Fred Elliott who was his school teacher. I was able to put him in touch with Fred which was nice.
In the afternoon Luc and I had to do the gash run (rubbish run to the incinerator) as we couldn't do it during the blizzard. There was a bit of dry reaching as the garbage water leaked into the back of the Hag. I'm not very good with that sort of thing but it gave Luc a good laugh. All evening I spent updating my blog.
