I'm now into my fifth year of retirement and I've fully adjusted to the new lifestyle. :)
I have four grandkids, with one more on the way. Lots of fun being a grandpa!
I'm not too active with ham radio these days, but I do occasionally
get on the air with QRP gear. Because of condo living, I don't have a permanent antenna, so that's a factor.
I am pleased to report that the "rumor" of Jay Chichon's passing was greatly exaggerated. While he was MIA for a while, and he did have serious medical issues, he's back home now and back in good health.
Had a nice 2 way Skype QSO with him just the other day. I'm glad my worry there was not realized.
