    You need to disassemble it and grind the paint off the interior so that you have bare metal on the inside

    Have you made the pilgrimage to Roswell yet?

    Stations of the Antenna Radial, with each major elevation change?

    (Flagellants: specify ELECTROMOTION bonding strap only).

    Devotees report visions of Alan have appeared at moments of intense soldering on a shunt when upside down in the trunk or hatchback.

    Best to be careful. Never take that name in vain.

    Almost learned that the very hard way having made some irreverent joke about “portable base station”. A few days later was in top gear on IH40 eastbound near dawn towards Amarillo from Albuquerque passing Clines Corners and heard a helluva explosion behind me. Mirror reflection almost blinded me. Burning bushes for miles across the desert , . .

    Later learned it was from the great Dr Lincoln La Paz himself he acquired the craft of how to form and hurl green lightning fireballs.

    Stepped out onto the front porch on Hwy 82 and hurled one northward 140-miles, he did.

    Mobile means mobile!



    (Its a great resource. The time alone in editing must be impressive. And I hope liberties taken here are considered with a smile).

    Much as I like that site, it’s a bit funny to hear some truck drivers go on about HOLY SCRIPTURE.

    I’ve used it that way. A bible.
