[AMRadio] AMRadio Digest, Vol 127, Issue 3

Read a lot and I don't comment much...but I'm almost done with the new 20X20 
shack... as Jim knows I once had some big iron and I'm going to put on tall 
ship back together. Bob your right on when to make a decision on enough is 
enough. I too did my duty for our country and things are showing up later in 
life from jumping out of perfectly flying aircraft or repelling off cliffs. 
But I digress. If it weren't for distance the T-213 would fit my needs. I 
have heard many T-2000 with amps and they will sound great with a little 
attention on the settings and the mic input.
