Phase I Flying–17.5 hours

When for a short flight this morning to check the charging voltage coming from my alternator.  My digital multi-meter showed that the voltage at the battery was only 12.2 volts DC.  I should have seen right around 14 volts DC.  So I enjoy another 45 minutes or so of sight-seeing before returning to Oakdale to start troubleshooting.

I got back to the hangar and pulled the cowl.  My first check hit paydirt.  I found that the fuse between my voltage regulator and the battery was blown!  I drove down to Kragen Spruce and Specialty and purchased a few more 30A fuses.  I’ll replace the fuse tomorrow and recheck the voltage.
