>Part of J's Alpha 9500 is with Brad at Alpha/ (output switching board).

>After SS Phone, the station will be dismantled.   Gear owned by the VY1AAA

>So -- for sure, VY1AAA will be QRV for both SS CW and Phone for 2019.  I

>20m, of course, is the money band.  40 is iffy, but 80m can be quite good.
>Will try 15 and 10, but not much hope.
>73 and cu in the piles,
