    It was during the Fate of the Orangutan address....

    So there I was, totally naked. With only a rubber hose and a stuffed animal...

    So, our evening then. Thanks, I guess if I had payed more attention, since you did say something about Cheeto Mussolini.
    I will have to steal yet more time away from school, since the computer and the rig are in two different locations currently. I'm wasting too much time here and over yonder as it is anyway. I hope to have that location thing fixed eventually, it will only take 1 hole in the wall right there...

    I love the wisdom of the old timers.

    Nothing from down there since. But was thrilled to make the trip.
    Very good catch. I got lucky once. I had a 2 min QSO fm simplex 2M 146.55 I think. I was signing off with a friend on local briar simplex channel. Boom! N8TB this is R0MIR in a choppy picket fence signal that jumped to full quieting. He did not say much but, wowsers what a footprint. I did not know that they had licensed hams on the crew. I sent a QSL card to their manager, and about 19 months later, after I had moved, I received the card.

My name, and address was the only English on the card. Wish I could find it.
