Karen how do you program the scanner?

Sadly we we do not appreciate the Little Things our wife's do for us. I just ran into yet another thing that Karen always took care of doing for us.

Karen liked to listen to the Police Scanner. I liked listening too, however she always took care of finding and putting the frequencies into the scanner, so I never had to worry about it.

This week Garth accidentally unplugged the scanner., and it lost all of its frequencies, all 200 of them. This scanner predates computer interfaces. The frequencies need to be entered by the keypad. :-(

Karen was an accomplished programmer when she wanted to be. She programmed the local Amateur (Ham) Radio Repeater system for years, having her Ham license as KD3ZU.

It is not the Big Things what we miss when someone dies, it is these Little Things of life that were overlooked when they were with us. Learn from my mistake and tell your Wife/Girlfriend/Significant Other 'Thank You!“.

Now off to find a manual for this scanner…


“I wish to do something Great and Wonderful, but I must start by doing the little things like they were Great and Wonderful” – Albert Einstein.

“When we first got married, we made a pact. It was this: In our life together, it was decided I would make all of the big decisions and my wife would make all of the little decisions. For fifty years, we have held true to that agreement. I believe that is the reason for the success in our marriage. However, the strange thing is that in fifty years, there hasn’t been one big decision.” – Albert Einstein.
