I am currently in Amman,Jordan and will be active in contest as part of
a  multi-single effort using the call JY8B. We expect to have a BIG Sig
- about 500 watts to a TH11, 2 Ele 40, Create rotary dipole on 80, and
160 sloper.  I have already been active on cw as JY8SP before the
contest and will be active again afterwards, possibly to include WARC.
Please work us on all bands as we are attempting to set a new
multisingle record from Asia, and of course, to win the contest as
multi-single from Asia.

Look for us on 1815  3515  7030  14030  21030   28030.

See you in a  few hours.

Some seemed to question the concept of concrete floating ... 
the more seasoned among us will recall WWII"s concrete ships, 
and there are many small pleasure craft made from concrete 
sprayed on a wire mesh form.

This looks like it's gonna be a super neat rig!  Question is whether or
not it is a mis-print regarding the LCD display, or if it is a CRT like
the 781.  Don't know if the LCD could support quick-refresh spectrum-scope
like a CRT (781-type).  Anyway, it is said to be priced at about $2000.00,
making it a great choice for my second radio to go with the 781.

Can't wait to see it.  My friend has one coming soon, and I'll tell you
the scoop  after we put it thru the paces!
