I was in a 'race' with Joe, AB5OR, my neighbor across town....but he's just too
doggone good an operator.  Shucks!  That bad boy beat me by a truckload (63/53 
3,339).  What do y'all think I should do about this situation???  Ha!
Of course, Joe has a very good antenna system, plus a new K3 that he built and
has that thing souped up beyond description.  Oh, well....it's tough down here
on Tobacco Road!

How fun it is to hear all my friends again!  I've been rather inactive lately,
and  you folks absolutely WOULD NOT BELIEVE what came off the bottom choke on
my Windom!  I have a photo that I'm glad to share. I've never seen a PL259
before that looked like it had been in a forest fire...and the coax going up
from the choke to the balun looked like it was bronze!  Culprit was...when I
installed the Windom, the choke came from the factory UPSIDE DOWN, so the
condensation weep hole was pointing UP!  That thing was gathering water like a
rain gauge.  No wonder!  It's a plumb miracle that I have any radio left at

Anyway, thanks for the Qs.  And, I'm so sorry to the two stations whose calls I
could not pull out of the mud here this morning.  Please give me another
