Great idea, Reid! I'd buy that stuff and wear it, and I'm the type who won't
even put a bumper sticker on my car. Sure it's commercial, but how nice to
a company whose name you actually *want* to display on your person! Now, let's
see... we need to suggest some slogans, etc. for the T-T-T-shirts... lot's of
possibilities... Got to fit "Amateur Radio" on there somewhere (cuz, strangely,
I've found that not everyone is a ham yet) and also "Designed and Manufactured
in the USA" (might have to play with the fonts a bit to fit that one on). And
how about an Omni-6 on the front and one of the new QRP kits on the back
(pictures, I mean, not the actual rigs, although that's another idea :-)
But you know Ten-Tec will never go for the shirt idea. After all, how is the
service dept. going to talk an OM through the proper procedure for removing a
ketchup stain if he doesn't know how to operate a washing machine? :-) :-) :-)
Whoops - Gotta go - mine's overflowing right now!!... (where's that 800 number?)
