    Sounds good, make sure you schedule the DX to be turned on. I can normally talk this side of the Mississippi river, and on occasion a lot farther.

    Hmmm...just saw the rules. I know it’s the honor system but I am sure some ham will use a ham radio that puts out more then 12w. So ok...it will be the honor system. Barefoot...wink wink.

    Yeah, it'll count me out as I don't currently run a standard cb on the base. Maybe if I can get the ranger 797 set up but there's time constraints on my end.
