I think our states have traded places, except it is far too congested unlike
your's and is still regulated to the point of stupidity, I'm looking to
move too within the next couple of years and probably somewhere near you. My
wife loves Miami which I really don't like very much so I figure perhaps NC
is a good compromise. (Seems to be a lot of good radio people there too with one
more coming)

anywhere, here or in the States. That one Condo Cop experience was enough for
me and there was no antenna restriction there.

I hope to be there, I had to work all weekend this spring, which was not fun
especially since I knew what was going on in NH. His workshop was the high
point of the NEAR-Fest for me last year.
