Well, we have finally recovered from the 20-plus inches of snow we received two weeks ago.  So, I was able to safely make it to the PO box again, after a week in almost-snowless Minneapolis, MN.

Back cover photo of the new IC-756PRO and some details  I think their marketing department has gone a little "overboard" with the statement "The greatest thing to hit HF since ... (a picture of sliced bread)" and comparing "CDs versus vinyl albums".  Oh well, maybe it will sell radios.
