Hi Bow:

Welcome to the list.  You will find a large group here that 
will provide you with support and assistance as time goes by 
with your needs, be it parts or just advice.

Your location is perfect to attend the gathering at Belton 
which is about 3 weeks away.  It is a great place for parts 
including transformers, chokes, tubes and things needed to 
home brew a transmitter.  It is also a great place for you 
to find some sort of amplifier should you choose to do that.

There is always a large gathering of folks who prefer AM to 
other modes, which will welcome you into their midst.  Try 
to make that one if possible.  They will be identified by 
the banner of QCWA Chapter 207.

In the meantime, put anything you have on the air. 
Propagation is good right now, except for the static 
generated by thunderstorms.  Next fall and winter will be 
great.  Tune around 3.880, 3.900 to find people in your 
area.  There are several.

Hope to work you soon.

73   Jim
