QST QST…..STATUS IN BAJA NEEDED

Putting this out to the amateur community. Hurricane Odile is smashing into Baja pretty fiercely right now and a friend contacted me to see if I could get a status on a marina there (that his family owns) where people are living in boats. I haven’t been able to get anything yet on HF.

I’m going to continue to monitor, but if any operators out there can hear a status, that would be immensely appreciated. 73 K1KMO

“…perhaps this journey may all make sense. I can’t explain  why so much of this world fell upon us despite all hopes or the things we did to try for just a moment in time  to bring something that mattered to life.  Know that in the journeys of the theatre of us which held a rare hope  that we did nothing wrong But a wheel inside me was set in motion  that will not stop for all the rivers that have come between us  or the countries we tried to cross  which carried no map other than  the longing to get through  and which stretched on and on without mercy into  a night that hasn’t ceased. To finally find a place to stop  and to find a peace  we have so often wanted.  But this land doesn’t end and  every fire that burns through another heart  to leave ashes still holds some sort of promise however quiet.  But peace  is not the same as happiness  and the river is still wide.  You  will only happen once  (for me) and never again and now are the days that if anything of value matters in this world at all I must hold on to the song of the singer I cannot see.  For in the melody that cuts me in half are the words ‘You love, because I loved you first.’ If you could see What I see In you…  So, until I wake…know I tried And gave everything I could.”

“…perhaps this journey may all make sense.
I can’t explain
why so much of this world fell upon us
despite all hopes or the things we did to try
for just a moment in time
to bring something that mattered to life.
Know that in the journeys of the theatre of us which held a rare hope
that we did nothing wrong

But a wheel inside me was set in motion
that will not stop for all the rivers that have come between us
or the countries we tried to cross
which carried no map other than
the longing to get through
and which stretched on and on without mercy into
a night that hasn’t ceased.

To finally find a place to stop
and to find a peace
we have so often wanted.

But this land doesn’t end and
every fire that burns through another heart
to leave ashes still holds some sort of promise however quiet.

But peace
is not the same as happiness
and the river is still wide.

You
will only happen once
(for me) and never again and now
are the days that if anything of value matters in this world at all
I must hold on to the song of the singer I cannot see.
For in the melody that cuts me in half are the words ‘You love, because I loved you first.’

If you could see
What I see
In you…

So, until I wake…know I tried
And gave everything I could.”

Our Simplex net for Downtown Los Angeles (and beyond) went swimmingly well again last night. New stations joined and it’s always fascinating when I do the map to see how stations’ signals propagate through the terrain. One station could only get to me by bouncing through the Cahuenga Pass.

Yesterday two of my friends from LAECT (Los Angeles Emergency Communications Team) met with staff at USC via another ham operator who is a retired doctor there. USC is the largest trauma center in LA but without any emergency communications capabilities beyond the standard cell phone and internet systems. This obviously needs to change and thankfully they are open to it.

Meeting in the bottom of the old 1931 building was both exciting and creepy. It looked as if it were right out of a Batman video game. Empty psych wards, medical dummies and pealing paint. All floors except the bottom 4 and the prison on the 13th floor are abandoned.

That is where I am going to go exploring next. As well as dragging a radio to the top floor to see how far I can transmit..
