There’s an AGGIE in the house!

11 Dec

Just back from a visit to Texas A&M University. My son has firmly decided to join the Corps of Cadets at A&M. For those that don’t know about the tradition at A&M, the Corps of Cadets has been around a very long time and is essentially a Military Academy within the framework of a Land Grant College setting. The Corps comprises about 5% of the total student population of TAMU. You can click here to see more. School begins on January 7th so time is short now. It will be much quieter around the old homestead after school starts up.

Not much more to report this week. We had a shortened week of Morse practice due to travel. I am still lusting after a new radio (SDR Flex 1500) and would like to work on methods of employing SDR’s on the web to test combination’s of antennas with real data vs modeling. The opportunities in this area are ripe for picking IMHO. Being busy with lots of irons in the fire is a great thing.

We are trying to find a way to visit Colorado during the holiday period but that may conflict with school plans for my son. So many opportunities, so little time.

Thanks for reading my Blog. Best, Chas W5PG

    Hi Chas, the video of the ‘aggie’ reminds me the years my son joined the Royal Navy as a naval officer. Very nice video, I like that very much. I also had thoughts about the SDR Flex 1500. But I found out that Flex 1500 is not yet compatible with Windows 7. So I must to wait. 73 Paul

      Hi Paul; yes it reminds me of my Navy daze as well. At least I wont have to wonder who he is keeping company with while out on his own for the first time. 🙂 Keeping himself on the “straight and narrow” path I think! Best, Chas
