Its so nice to have Steve and I agreeing on something! <wink> I guess its
our 20 more years of aging...

About the only thing I fall back on is HF. No one else has that and it
works peer-to-peer anywhere in the world... (for those that understand it
and wait for it to happen). My only problem is that I can't even keep a
dipole up more than a few weeks before its on the ground and chopped up
with the lawnmower.
I 'm sure when I retire, that I will FINALLY put some effort into an HF
antenna system... and join all the old farts on the low bands.
But I got 2 more satellites at least to go first....
(and APRStt to get the other 90% of our club involved in APRS appliations
in the field with "data").
