Do you check for shorts before or after you clean the connector on your
pants? Is it really necessary to wear shorts with the pants, or is that
only necessary if you don't let the connector cool completely before
I like the idea of lighting up the dummy load with 100 watts. Never seems
to be a shortage of them at field day, but they sure do squawk when you hit
them with the juice!
Inquiring minds want to know! 8^)
