    I used to have so much fun building antennas and skip wave and completely screwing up CW but trying like the devil to do SOMETHING. I actually think I had more fun on 11 meters SSB than anything else. My skills with radio equipment and the like really helped me when was my XO's RTO in the army. I made some pretty mean two-niner-twos (it's a field expedient antenna made with claymore wire, 550 cord, 100 mph tape and MRE spoons) that saved our butts a couple of times.

    So, KB7CG and H80N where do they keep the reverse engineered UFO craft and what about the aliens who have a base out there...ever get to meet any of them? 

    I know, I know, you could tell us, but then you'd have to kill us.

Need something to stir the urge again I suppose.
    I know what you mean Ryan... I was hot and heavy in UHF & VHF for years and years. Being an EE I was on the tech committees did more than my share of mountain topping, and tower climbing... the magic moment was one weekend, my grandson's High School Graduation was taking place, and I wanted to be there... one of the UHF repeaters took a dump, and some of the club members got really ticked off at me, because I wouldn't drive the 50 (100 round trip) miles to run up there to fix it... words were exchanged... after that, I really got burnt out, dropped out of all the clubs, and boxed up all the gear. I keep an HF skid every Sunday with my uncle on 15 meters, but that's the extent of my Haming now.

    H80N... I like your Morgan... I have a pair of " B's" and 59 A (not running, project car... as if I need another project!... ) would love a Three wheeler but can't afford it. There are a couple here in the S. Nevada area, I see them once in a while.

    I'll have to check that out, been a while since I looked at it, thanks HOZ...

    WELL... it wasn't the consumables ... stopped after work yesterday, and bought all new everything... still doing the exact same thing. Cut about two inches into 1/4 plate... POP. No more cutting ... looking at the schematic I see there are one or two time delay fuses. I'm going to order replacements and try it again.
    thanks everyone for the suggestions,

    chuck
