Yes, Bill's voice and his Kenwood really sounds impressive.

I heard  Paul and Ashtabula Bill on the same? frequency, like they could not
each other, both were very strong at my QTH.
I try to stay off the air when Ashtabula Bill is on, he is typically VERY
and wide. Its like having an ssb qso right on top of your frequency.

Yep, heard you all quite nicely here in Central VT, have to ditto your
remarks Brett about Bill's Kenwood. I know he has a lot of 'stuff' in
line there, and the T599 seems to handle it all just fine.

I was listening on the 75A-1 whilst dismantling the slain Christmas
tree in the other room. Very pleasant audio. First time I've heard
Craig's voice, was quite a shock after emailing for so long. Talk
about a deep, 'radio' voice!  I hope '2ZM got his transmitter audio
problem solved. I was hearing him fine, but the audio was a little
scruffy around the edges. I wrote it off to it being a 1930's tx,
obviously it was something more involved.

Also heard Ashtabula Bill getting a bit annoyed by Paul, who was
apparently too close by for his liking. I suppose it's not as easy to
spread out on 40 with all of the foreign BC and SSB activity around.

The YL called and I was on the phone with her for a while and remember
hearing The Nutcracker and other music coming across the frequency.
Everyone did seem to drop out quickly. Of course, I only have about a
ten foot piece of wire hooked onto the back of the A-1 right now,
which probably doesn't help.

Enjoyed it emmensely. Can't wait to join in again.
