FIRSTLY, a picture of the Operating Postion quite a few years ago. The equipment consists of:
Hammarlund HQ-170 ham band receiver
Viking Ranger II AM/CW transmitter
Radio Shack DX-440 shortwave receiver.
Olson SWR meter
Heathkit antenna switch
MFJ antenna random-wire antenna tuner
Between the Hammarlund and the Viking are some radio crystals. I do not remember why they are there. Maybe left over from the Globe Scout, which may even be sitting left of the Hammarlund, or maybe for a frequency marker I had. Surely I did not take this picture with the Nikon!
SECONDLY, I just discovered a few minutes ago that Jane Krakowski was in National Lampoon's Vacation!
THIRDLY, I found out that the reason I don't get voice messages is that hadn't turned that feature on.
FOURTHLY, I tripped across the information (newspaper articles) on the web, newly-indexed (I guess), that affirms the story that a fellow I knew in the service told me about how he ended up there. Woah!
And FIFTHLY, every sunflower seedling I planted outside has been et, by snails, I assume, except two. What a world.
It's not JUST about what I had for breakfast...
