Few of us get on ch28 AM in morning time, drinking coffee and telling lies as old men do.
Band was quiet and then out of no where unit 4209 mobile London England broke the ch looking for DX.
Said made his day to make it to USA on AM. didn't hear any other skip, then few minutes later 317 out of Cali came booming in, unusual morning and lots of fun.

Larry, do you remember the guy that used to be up in Sitka Alaska?
I think it was Ed, used to run a Galaxy base station.

I haven't talked to Sitka for many years, use to talk to Betty and her husband many many times from there back in the 70's. They sent me down 60 lbs of Sika deer meat one year, which I really enjoyed!!

So no on knowing Ed.

Used to be a handful of guys up there, he was always there when the band was open but it was years ago.
Another one was a guy in French Polynesia that I can't remember his name now.
Getting old lol

I continued to work the World over the weekend with my ICOM 703 PLUS & the 10 watts it puts out.I worked several stations in Australia,New Zealand,Spain,France, Guadelupe, Brazil,Haiti,Croatia,Germany,Austria & many more.I worked them on 10,15,17,& 20 meters & all of them were pretty easy.It's proof that the bands are far from Dead so get out there & make some contacts.I used to think that Life was Too Short for QRP but I have changed my mind & that's a Rare thing for me at age 61 I promise you.I have only made three QSO's on the ICOM 7600 & ICOM PW-1 amplifier in three weeks but I assure you I am not getting rid of that setup for sure.I Love working QRO & QRP so I will just keep them both plus the ICOM 746 & ICOM 7000.Did I mention that I Love ICOM Gear? LOL

  • @ kb9ghn:
    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
