This post didn't have a title for a brief time, and here's why

What happens when you leave the subject line blank in an Ode post and start it on line 3?

Answer: It works, but it also messes up my archive page because there is no title to put in the listing that serves as text for the link.

The lack of a title doesn't stop the site from working, and the permalink at the bottom of the post still works.

I see other bloggers doing this with the "micro blog" posts they write in their traditional blogs, and a few systems/themes provide support for title-less posts.

But in the interest of not breaking my archive page, I'm going to stick with titles for my Ode-generated social media posts.

Should I sell my ham radio gear?

Should I sell my ham radio gear? Maybe. If I had the time, I'd do more homebrew (as in making my own equipment from parts, not anything to do with intoxicating beverages).

VE7SL leads me to amateurradio.com

VE7SL leads me to http://www.amateurradio.com, which has a killer URL and is a pretty good site.

The VE7SL Amateur Radio Blog

There's a lot of good reading at http://ve7sl.blogspot.ca, the VE7SL Amateur Radio Blog. Love the homebrew and old gear articles!
