    Channels to check for dxing into Europe.

    Humm - I wonder how it is that I have talked to several stations in S. Africa on 27 through the last cycle and have had several people tell me from there, that 27 is their call channel? But I guess it doesn't really matter, I'll just carry on talking to them in S. Africa on 27..........

    Anyone own this Beam

    A local here had one, but took it down. Not sure if his was a 8 or maybe a 4, but either way he didn't like it at all. It was hard to tune and he discovered that when he transmitted on the vertical, there was lots of power coming back down the horizontal feed line. So he has it for sale and...

    30-30 Ammo

    I was fortunate to be able to get all of my brass free for many years. Rifle range + gravel pits around here always had plenty of brass laying around. I sold over 2000 brass casings (30-06) to local scrap yard one day. I also made a $40 sale to one gentlemen on some 300 Weatherby Magnum casing...
