So I picked up the SSB radio up from the shop in Oriental. He had done the programing change and tested it all good-to-go.
On the way home a pretty momma deer ran across the road. She stood there a long time deciding when to leap. Always fun to see how close you can get before they spook.
And we spent a good part of the day trying to get our modem talking to the SSB radio.....still working on it!
