Slow Sunday now that we have plans to be at a real address I am ordering some things we have been wanting. A new omni antenna for the cell telephone booster amplifier we have as the current antenna we use is short and mounted to Buster’s right side. The new omni antenna will mount on a pole and extend higher to receive a better signal. I will be able to get the antenna up to twenty-two feet in the air for a better signal. I have the pole now a ten foot section of PVC pipe and a telescoping pole I can put into the PVC pipe and attaches outside to Buster. Even with this antenna and a three watt amplifier our signal strength varies from hour to hour from 1X 1 bar to 4 G two bars sometimes. That is now waiting for us there in Pleasanton. Calls do drop and the other person has a hard time hearing my voice. The air card for internet is also slow and for that reason uses more bites to load information.

The cattle show was different tonight, the cows stayed longer on Busters left side eating the grass that has not been picked over since we have been here at the gate. As the picture shows they were right up to the generator trailer and the gray water tank on the ground.
