I'm "on here" but I get the Ten-Tec reflector in digest format and don't read 
it all that often ... 

Vibroplex videos are something I intend to get to.  It got past me this year 
keeping everything going at Vibroplex and now the USA/Canada office for 
Spiderbeam antenna - www.spiderbeam.us - which I exhibited at Dayton this year 
and then formally took over as of August 1.

I was over at the Ten-Tec factory in early December, plus did a table for 
Vibroplex and Spiderbeam at the Ten-Tec hamfest in September.  Picked up my 
parts (rewind ... Ten-Tec is doing some fabrication work for Vibroplex parts 
...) talked to Jim and the sales crew for a while and played with the new Eagle 
in the radio room - the receiver on that rig sure does sound nice.  They were 
just getting going on the Eagle when I left a year ago - we had a mockup and a 
working digital display back then but the receiver and transmitter were still 
being sussed out.  

Been a fun year - went to WRTC-2010 in Russia in July as part of a 3 week 
vacation in Europe and was at PJ4D in Bonaire mid-October 8 days for the 
breakup of the Netherlands Antilles and a new DXCC counter.  

So now we're all up to date :-)
