2016 dreams…….I mean goals.

2015 is ending and soon it's going to be 2016 before you know it! In the past I have made New Years resolutions some very ambitious and short lived and other I still hold to today. As I age I realize more and more the most important thing is your health. One of the areas of your health that affects a whole lot of areas is your weight. I would be happy to loose about 20 lbs or so and that for sure would help me out in the long run. With regards to ham radio in the past I have made New Years goals of improving my CW speed, getting on the air more, trying new modes and so on. For some reason I fall into the same old same old, not finding the time to see these goals to reality. It seems these days it's all about finding the time or should I say setting the time aside to achieve the goals you set for yourself. Time has always been my problem as it seems you are pulled in many directions. Maybe it's about multi tasking.......at this moment I am typing this post and I have the rig on listing to CW and checking the P3 band scope for any activity. The post may take a bit longer (there is that time thing again) but I am able to get some radio time in and accomplish a blog post as well. This brings me back around to the start of my post....am I going to make any resolutions for  2016?? Of coarse I am.........for the hobby I would like to try to keep this multi tasking thing going it seems to be working for me so what the heck. Maybe I can get more posts out and improve my on air time. Personally I would like to eat better, drops some pounds and fit in some more activity. Happy New Year to all my readers and all the best in the coming new year.

    Best of luck with the New Year resolutions, Mike. Grab a ht and get outside with it. Run a bit or just take a walk and see what you can find on uhf/vhf or just listen to some FM. I know it’s cold up your way, but that just adds to the challenge. Stay warm. 73, Mike Hohmann, Minneapolis.

    Good evening Mike and thanks for taking the time to post a comment, I really like walking and thank goodness my job also is a physical one so that helps as well. It’s a very good idea about an HT. Around these parts I have found there is not to much going on with VHF/UHF, I may be better off with a scanner HT instead.
    Happy New Year Mike and best health to you and your family.
    73, Mike
