Back around 1990, I sold my NOS UTC CVM-5 600 watt mod transformer for
$75.00 to John. Problem was we got our wires crossed, and I delivered it to
John Mohn, W5MEU at the same time as Sulpher John was knocking on my door in
Kyle, Tx. I was with Robert Sisco, K5LYT. We eventually got it straight, and
all had dinner curtesy of Bobby (W5MEU's XYL). That was an interesting day.
Anybody know what became of Sulpher John's HB KW with my old CVM-5?

We might, but I -swear- Bill Ross (K5LLK) who was close friends with
John told me, -long- before he died (and I was -at- that funeral) that
Sulphur John was a silent key.  John's Father was still hanging around,
after he passed away.

I knew it was true.  I can't get wrapped around my head that this is
already 2005   :-(
