I’m a little late in posting this, so please forgive me!
I had a bit of trouble with my DOS-based scanner control program… I missed a setting and ended up wiping all the stored frequencies (RTFM) in my Uniden BC895XLT scanner. D’oh!
Luckily, I had a backup of sorts on paper and in an OpenOffice spreadsheet, so all was not lost. I was able to listen in on the HAM bands and hear the weather forecasts for the surrounding area. Unfortunately, I didn’t bother with the DOS software and tuned the scanner manually.
Didn’t end up using my Ten Tec RX320D software controlled radio either – couldn’t find a suitable power adapter in the pile.
So, That’s it for me. The last few (extended) days of the Retrochallenge were a non-event , apart from a few rounds of Fire Hawk and Escape From the Planet of the Robot Monsters. But, if nothing else, I didn’t bow out early this time!
If all goes well, I’ll see you all in the 2015 RC Winter Warmup… in a new house, with a new lab.
