About a month ago, I asked,
“What is going on with you during this challenging situation?” and, “How do you use amateur radio, now that we are all stuck at home? Are you using ham radio more, now? Less?“
I am moved to say, “Thank you, to each of you who commented and even those who made a video response. I sure appreciate it!“
During that video blog (or, Vlog), back a month ago (link: Chat From a Quarantined Software Engineer – Welfare Check!), I mentioned my need for dental surgery.
I did have to have the tooth removed. It was completely split down the middle (top to bottom), down to the root. There was no justifiable way to save the tooth.
I now am missing two bottom back-most teeth, and one bottom, back-most tooth. I can report that I have healed up nicely. I am starting to enjoy a hamburger or two.
Through all of this, I’ve still been working. Also, I’ve been involved with a LOT more ham radio–especially with Morse code activities.
How has the last month treated you? After watching this new video (below), please leave a comment or two, or three; let hear from you, okay?
More than anything, please leave a comment to let me know how you are doing. I hope to hear from you.
Here’s the video:

This is a welfare check on you. Please leave a comment on how you are faring, what is happening in your situation with the lock-down.
Are you quarantined? Working from home? Did you lose your job? How are you doing during this crazy time?
What is going on with you during this challenging situation?
I talk about what I’m doing, too. I’m quarantined at home. I can work from home, as I am a senior software engineer. I can do my job by remote access to a virtual workstation, through a secure VPN connection. I’m blessed that I still can work during this lock-down.
But, I have a medical emergency – a dental problem – and trying to be seen by a dentist is difficult, because all of the local dentists were told to shut down their daily business and quarantine. Only emergency appointments are being made! I was finally, after two days of phone calls, able to schedule an emergency visit to my dentist!
I want to know: How do you use amateur radio, now that we are all stuck at home? Are you using ham radio more, now? Less?
Please leave a comment to let me know how you are doing, and answer the other questions, too. I hope to hear from you.
I hope to meet you on the shortwave amateur radio bands. I am usually using Olivia, or Morse code CW. More information about Olivia: http://OliviaDigitalMode.net.
Be healthy, be safe, stay sane!
