The Johnny O Show

 

I started building my first homemade 20 meter antenna in Colorado with my dad, and after taking it back home to Iowa with me, I discovered that it turned out magnificent. ;-)

I gave the girls the job of unboxing and getting my new American DJ Mini Dekker LZR and LTS-2 lighting stand set up and running... Not sure what happened leading up to that point. ;-) But we finished setting it up and I got to test out several settings and play around with it... in summary, I'm a little underwhelmed with it, but for $125, I suppose I couldn't expect much more. Plus, for me buying

Tiana was out of commission that day, so Brittain was a substitute and did a pretty good job. It was a great recipe and probably one of my favorites. Subscribe: http://...

So the whole family - the four of us, Autumn & Mike, and Grandma Teresa - gathered round for a fun night of Pie Face. It was pretty fun, even though I was reluctant to play at all. ;-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

Brittain finished her board - a little messy as far as the soldering job went, but it seemed like she got it all right... Just backwards? The tones were opposite when I tried to transmit some CW, but with a little further testing, it smoked. It was my fault though - the power adapter I used was supposed to be 12volt, but it was in actuality 14 volts. Seems that is what fried it. It was soldered
Jacob and Brittain got their special 40 meter, QRP CW pixie kits in the mail, and since I've got my new great soldering station, I had the kids assemble them right away. It was Brittain's first time ever building something like this, so it's a little rough around the edges... But so far so good. We'll see how it turns out. Subscribe: http://...

I made a data cable previously to hook the Yaesu FT-817ND radio up to my laptop. and this time around I'm making one for the iPad. I tell you all that I did to make the data cable, and what I needed to do on the iPad to make it all work correctly. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

It was another good one, rating a 7 and 8 between Robin and I. ;-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Got another box of meals from Home Chef. The first dish was adobo chicken enchiladas with jalapeño pepper and sour cream. I've discovered, Home Chef has a wider variety of choices and bigger portion sizes when compared to other food box companies. This meal was another winner for me. Subscribe: http://... Check out
I bought a small, 60W King Solar solar panel and wanted to see how well it would work using my 5W Yaesu FT-817ND out in the field with a makeshift 20 meter antenna. I heard quite a lot and made some impressive contacts. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

This year, while the girls were off doing their own thing, Robin and I headed to Pella to observe their annual Tulip Time Festival. There were lots of free entertainment, crafts and booths, and no need to mention plenty of flowers. :-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

***Click here to get a coupon for $40 off your first order of Hello Fresh http://... *** Our final meal from this box of HelloFresh was sesame beef tacos with quick-pickled veggies and spicy crema. I think this meal was the best out of the 3 - gave it an 7.5-8. HelloFresh didn't disappoint this round. ;-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://... #thejohnnyoshow
***Click here to get a coupon for $40 off your first order of Hello Fresh http://... *** Second meal from our most recent order of HelloFresh: winning pork medallions, with potatoes, brussels sprouts, and tarragon cream sauce. This one wasn't our favorite, but for what it was it was pretty good. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://... #thejohnnyoshow
***Click here to get a coupon for $40 off your first order of Hello Fresh http://... *** So we've given HelloFresh another try, it's been awhile. This meal was the New York strip steak with balsamic reduction, over polenta, blistered tomatoes, and green beans. I gave it a 6, and Robin doesn't much care for NY strip, but Brittain really enjoyed it. :-) Excited to try the others. Subscribe:
