CQ CQ de Double XP Weekend!

I got an email the other day from PlayNC, publishers of City of Heroes. One of my favorite games. This weekend is Double XP weekend! Woo Hoo! Now I can really do some work on my "toons". City of Heroes is one of the only games I'm really playing now. I was playing Neverwinter Nights but after I got broadband again, I just started playing CoH again. And I recently got City of villains too! So maybe I'll make a really good villain toon, and play him/her a little this weekend where I can.

But this weekend is also the Utica Amateur Radio club's hamfest. (Hamfest is a ham radio swap meet. You can buy, sell and trade radios, computers and parts and just about anything!) One of the things I enjoy most about being a ham is the hamfests. Going out and spending the day with friends you talk to on the radio, but don't get to see that often. I like to make it a whole day long thing. Go to the fest, do some browsing, maybe buy some needed parts, have something to gnash, and then relax the rest of the day. Maybe sit back and have a few drinks. That to me is a good day.

Plus I get to spend it with Kim and Terry. And with Double XP weekend on top of it, it's going to be a good weekend!

So I've been filling in at Q103 doing the 7 to Midnight shift for like 3 months now. This has gotten me a ton more experience and made me feel a lot more sure of my on air skills.

And tonight, as I was settling in for my shift, Jeff Mrozek commented to me that he thought I sounded solid on here. I have respected Jeff as a fellow jock for a while. Mostly because he sounds good on the air and sounds like he has his shit together. After he told me that, I felt waay better about everything I do on the air now. I would love to work full time in Albany. That was my goal when I got back, and a stepping stone twoards my other goal of being a Program Director.

And that won't happen till I get full time somewhere. Hopefully soon.
