Dang it, 144. I usually have the beam pointed north. I forgot you was south of me. I did hear you the other day on ch20 am. I'm up around Oxford / Anniston area...south side of Coldwater Mountain. I'm always on ch20 AM in the shop....it makes it easier for customers to get in touch with me...

Handy Andy.....Thank you for the info. I'm going to add that in my notebook for future reference...
