    Just wondering as MANY have claimed that out of spite and not fact. Yes, sadly there are ass clowns everywhere in every hobby.

    The guy I was talking to was from the Carolinas I believe. Shortly after I posted that, I went outside to mow the grass.:( hopefully I can get back to the radio this evening.

    Had the radio on 555U since early this morning but was in/out of the room doing chores. Heard the contester CQing but didn't pay much attention to his contacts. Doggone it!

    Not sure Ralph & I might be setting records on WWDX for 11m Dx contacts . Yes we know how " Mother Nature " works .:whistle: But have we been lucky , today ( no stop watch ) I bet we chatted over 40 minutes on SSB . We had to QSY a few times as DX kept shouting on us , but what a chat we had ! The Youngest of the " 357 Twins " , Leo 73 & God Bless ! Thanks Slo for that nick name ! (y):)
