AT least I know now, I'm not so alone in my age group ;-) Besides, I
think Brett/N2DTS in around our age group. Slightly but not only a few
notches either way of 50 years old. Brian/WA5AM is around the same
age... most of the other AM'ers I know are retired and beyond.

Gotta hand it to Jon/AD5HR... he's only been a ham for about 6 yeas...
and he's building rigs. He's talking on a homebrew rig, running a pair
of 807's modulated by a home-brewed modulator, running a pair of 807's,
and the modulator is driven by his homebrew speech-amp. That rig, while
desktop. probably weighs in at around 1.5 lbs per watt ;-)
73 = Best Regards,
(I was raised by an old ham)
