Quite intense wind and rain storm tonight. Surf very strong and tides expected to be high tomorrow.
I did the unforgivable and incorrectly connected the Argonaut to the power supply. Reverse polarity event. Two fuses, one in the rig and one in-line on the power cord. Fortunately they blew and saved the transceiver. First time I ever did such a dumb thing. Had to go to a major home repair supply outlet to find proper fuse replacements, Some fuses available in the local supermarkets but not the type I needed. All OK now.
Unfortunately, 2-way contacts have been non-DX. Did appear on the RBN as logged by a number of east coast NA stations, but nothing beats a 2-way DX QSO.
Not as frustrated as I would have been years ago. More important things to fret over these days.
