    Oh, no...wait a minute. I think you said it best, you gave me that radio and then I sent you that scanner. That’s premeditated so it’s not random.

    Some ideas take time to root.
    Stony soil.

    Some RAOK are (and will be) anonymous in nature.

    “ . . but when you (do an act out of kindness), let not your left hand know what your right hand is doing so that your giving may he in secret”

    We were taught it’s the act of kindness — not the recognition —which is our store in Heaven.

    So, wordsmith, pithily reconcile the two, please.

    Unstopper the bottle.

    I’ve met up with two (2) drivers of my long acquaintance where calling it coincidence doesn’t cover the odds on both of us hundreds of miles from home and neither going out-of-route.

    Latest was last week. A pair of toroid chokes made from my spares bag for either end of the coax. A few ferrite beads to scatter over the rest.

    Result: An Anytone 6666 got kind of a tuned-up system to play with.

    A guy who can run harder than me. But lost 60-days last year after a heart attack. Two weeks after his wife’s.

    Skip now viable. Sideband now a regular thing to check. Hard to resist testing a performance check once done.


    How’s the radio kaffeeklatsch in your neighborhood?’
