    I don't think it can be "envy" since it is only guesswork !

    Hello from a brand new member! WD4ICJ here...handle is Ron...recently retired from commercial radio broadcasting, so have time now to get back on HF ham radio. Been a long time! Hope to be active soon on 80, 40 and 20 AM with an old Knight Kit T150-A.

    Another interest tho --- Has anyone tried Part 15 operation on 13.560mhz? Pt 15 allows considerably more field strength there than on the CB band, for example, especially since it's measured at 30 meters instead of 10. I hope to try it soon for some REAL QRP!

    Also in the market for a Globe Scout 65-A. Had one as a kid ---- thought I had bought another one several weeks ago, but it looks liked I was scammed. Anybody have one? '73s! Ron WD4ICJ, Palm Coast, FL

    Hello Ron, and welcome. You'll enjoy retirement and wonder how the hell you ever found time for work.

    The barkeep will be along shortly. Enjoy the cocktail and don't put your eye out with the umbrella.

    Welcome to the Island, Ron. I haven't experimented on 13.560MHz—too many other things I want to do on the regular ham bands first—but it sounds like it might be fun. Please keep us informed of your progress.

    Barkeep, set this man up with the umbrella drink of his choice and put it on my tab!

    There's no more room on your tab. It's worse than the national debt.

    And a hearty welcome to you, too, Ron. I see our Island Bartender, Charles has already set up up. Enjoy!

    What rx you suing with that T150-A. By any chance an R-100? That was my step-up rx from an AR-3 and I LOVED it! If ya don't have one, that'd make a wonder vintage radio. My R-100 lived up to all of Allied's specs. It was fabulous!

    Again, welcome to the island!
