Saturday! Protons! Caffè Latte! Cappuccino! Pop-Quiz on NRK!
Yesterday we erected the dual 340 beverage, although far-end ground termination is not yet in place. We also set up all the gear for this winter's DX; below is Arnstein's and OJ's SDRs and hard drives.
The 1974 Tandberg Huldra 11 (US version is TR 2025) has been reduced to being an SDR support.
Yesterday's dinner started off with fried bits of salmon and butter sauce, with fried ham, accidentally reduced to mostly carbon.
The main course was chicken fillets, marinated in Provence-type spices, butter sauce (OJ made a lot) and mashed potatoes. Assorted cheese for dessert.
We tested a few new wines and one old: The latter, Calle's Riesling went well with the salmon while a bottle of La Vieille Ferme 2013 was considered appropriate for the chicken. A Trerose 2012 kept it company. A Gigondas 2011 tasted well with the cheese (or the other way around). A Ron Zacapa rum, supplied by TJ, rounded off the dinner.
Weather is quite OK, 9 Celsius, light winds but occasional rain.
