[18:17] <edmoore> hello!
[18:25] <Hiena> Well, this year began so well. I had an airplane accident. We crashed with one of our club member a powered han-glider. The plane totaled. He injured his wrist, and arm. I had a cut on my throat and some glass to face. Also some minor strains...
[18:25] <edmoore> christ
[18:25] <edmoore> that doesn't sound like fun
[18:27] <Hiena> Much fun than being dead. Also we learnt never try to land to a turbulent short field.
[18:30] <gordonjcp> Hiena: oops
[18:30] <gordonjcp> well, "any landing you walk away from"...
[18:31] <Hiena> True, really true. I hopes the ER guys will put together our pal. He is a damn good pilot.
[18:31] <gordonjcp> you're both pretty much okay, though?
[18:39] <Hiena> I'm fine. Some cuts and bruises and minor strains. I had worst accident in the past. We was lucky, because we catched a bush at first, and fliped over.
[18:40] <gordonjcp> a dramatic start to the new year!
[18:40] <Hiena> After the cleaning the cuts looks fine.
[18:41] <gordonjcp> "Pain heals, chicks dig scars" ;-)
[18:58] <Hiena> I had it in latin.

[18:58] <Hiena> Also, my girlfriend want to see me. ;)

[20:31] <edmoore> jcoxon: cool
[20:32] <jcoxon> speedy emails
[20:32] <jcoxon> just thought it would be a sensible way of doing things eventually
[20:32] <rjharrison> boo
[20:32] <edmoore> agreed - good plan
[20:32] <rjharrison> Right I have just got the beacon working
[20:32] <rjharrison> Soldered
[20:32] <jcoxon> excellent
[20:33] <edmoore> I now have a new portable server with UPS which will definitely see use for this
[20:33] <edmoore> (a laptop)
[20:33] <jcoxon> hehe
[20:33] <jcoxon> radio working yet?
[20:33] <rjharrison> Very interesting dasy chain of resistors at the moment
[20:33] <edmoore> visiting hamradio.co.uk tomorrow
[20:33] <edmoore> been in london yesterday and today
[20:34] <jcoxon> edmoore, any chance that we could set up an auto station for sat?
[20:34] <edmoore> where?
[20:34] <rjharrison> Pic coming up
[20:34] <jcoxon> at home?
[20:34] <edmoore> gosh, can try
[20:34] <edmoore> though - I wasn't planning on buying a yagi, and I'd have thought i'd need one for this
[20:35] <jcoxon> but the flight path is rather interesting
[20:35] <jcoxon> as in its going to over fly me and go towards kent
[20:35] <jcoxon> won't need a yagi
[20:35] <jcoxon> up to you of course :-p
[20:35] <edmoore> was thinking the balcony of my gf's flat in stratford would be perfect - it is on the top floor of a big apartment block and has a completely unobstructed view of 180 degrees of north, via east, to south
[20:36] <jcoxon> that would be a good place
[20:36] <edmoore> yeah
[20:37] <jcoxon> edmoore, ->99
