Well, I am an OLD buzzard at 71 years of age and 50 years as a ham.
But I have run packet on two meters and have attempted moon bounce and
satalite bounce so my technology is not totaly ancient.

I am not currently on AM but should be soon (got to modify the 32S1 to
modulate AM) and also on 6 meters FM.  Both are old buzzard things I
guess.  The S-Line is definately an old buzzard thing.  I started in
'58 on 6 meters AM.
