   Greetings and salutations,

   Last week I was worked by a gentleman in the south. He had an incredible
   signal and the highest quality sound I have heard on the air. Of course I
   asked him of his equipment. He told me he was working me with a Kenwood
   2000XB5 and a colored amp running full legal limit plus 500 watts. I was a
   bit taken back by this term "colored amp". Upon some detailed research I
   came upon an article in Ebony Magazine. It turns out a fine group of African
   American ham radio operators/ engineers have designed a small but powerful
   amplifier made of chickens, hog jowls, pickled herring and hickory smoked
   bacon.  They  are driving a pair of 6L6's with a hybrid wish bone type
   resonant  "chicken  coil". Me being a farmer. I tried to replicate the
   circuit. I was not successful in even getting a chicken to resonate. Not
   before electrocuting six of my finest laying hens. It has given me new
   meaning to the term "fried chicken". Has anyone else in this group heard of
   such a thing? Or maybe have any ideas on the matter? 73's and 88's - Elmer
