    Hotboxing the garage/trailer with two-stroke smoke, and lot of truck miles.
    Leftover spaghetti for dinner tonight.
    Lots of emails/followups from Haydays last week. Presentation to put together for the Denver expo.
    Microwave link install coming up in a few weeks.
    And there's still work to do in the house. :umph

    There are some expensive places near Performance. One that looks reasonable is Marco's Coal Mine Pizza or Bono's Pit BBQ
    Any other suggestions?

    yep, welcome to the parker/centennial area. :\

    Over at Arap/25 there's more reasonably priced stuff. JD's sports bar we did SMMU at many years ago. Couple mexican joints out that way too (3 margaritas, Amigos). Couple indian joints too. Dickeys BBQ further east, Brothers (which isn't that great imo) at arap/25.

    Anyone for something quick tonight? Shack?

    Presentation to finish for expo this weekend, and apparently the last update I did broke something on my radio's analog personality... :baldy
    (i hate subscriber radios, infrastructure's waaaay easier to deal with)

    yes? :patch

    Snowmobile expo, 1hr workshop on backcountry radio use.
    Quick go-over of rf spectrum, and why a VHF-band business radio can't talk to a UHF-band GMRS/FRS radio, and why a 900Mhz communicator won't work with an FRS radio kind of stuff.
    Go over some equipment that's out there... handhelds, helmet communicators, Garmin's Rino radio/GPS, accessories like speaker-mics and headsets.
    Then probably put a good amount of effort into channels and tones, how they work, why they work, etc. Do some demos, why you can hear me but I can't hear you ... stuff i've had people come to me in the mountains about with their radios.
    Go over some emergency stuff, voice protocol, how to communicate effectively and clearly on-air.
    Leave some time at the end for Q&A/show-and-tell with my fleet of gear and some borrowed equipment.

    Awesome. Should be a good presentation. Military background coming from Satellite Network Control gave me a solid understanding of communications. Undergrad focus just let me go further down the rabbit hole. Will be moving to the NE to put all of it to use after a few years here building experience.
