I might be doing consulting work in my main field of expertise anyway.  It was always going to be a "semi-retirement".   I think the prefix "semi" is important.

Then, there is the backlog of projects that need attention.  I'll probably restart them after I get back from LHI.
  • Installation of 60 foot self-supporting tower and beam antenna at the QTH
  • Building a few "French" VDA (Vertical Dipole Array) antenna for a DX colleague.
  • And, due to the up-coming DX'pedition opportunities, re-develop a streamlined "kit" for going on adventures.  The LHI trip has identified a few areas to improve.  But, in terms of equipment setup, I have a good list and worksheet to base the next trip.
  • Establish the fund-raising needed for a DX'p every year.   I think that at least every two years, and perhaps every year (depending on fund-raising), I will be trying to go on a DX'pedition.    When I get back from LHI, I'll have a much better idea of how that should work.
