Thank you so much for everyone's support yesterday when I was feeling quite down: nine replies on the blog and as many again directly by email is true support in the best spirit of amateur radio. The message is "don't let the idiot's beat you down", which will be my motto.
Ours is a GREAT hobby and I guess we have to accept there will be a few bad apples in the orchard. Anyway, firmly back in gear here with a list of projects far too long to do any time soon. Several interruptions likely in the next few weeks but I'll be getting my teeth into some good ones very soon.
