Home from the ‘Fest

MapIf you’ve emailed me in the past two weeks there’s a good chance you haven’t received a response; my apologies.

The reason is that I’ve been travelling through DC, Philadelphia, and surrounding areas, visiting friends and colleagues, as well as attending (and presenting at) the 29th annual Winter SWL Fest. It’s been a fantastic trip and, fortunately, inclement weather happened on days I didn’t need to drive in crazy traffic–about all you can ask for in the northeastern US in the middle of winter.

But while travelling I had very little time to keep up with email and tips from readers, as is so often the case when one is on the road. Now that I’m back at home base, nearly a hundred emails from Post readers beg responses–so if you haven’t heard from me yet, this is why. As I catch up on my backlog of email, thanks, readers, for your patience and understanding.

But first, let’s see what’s on the shortwave bands this evening…
