Bob, by the time you ship it to all 48 states, it's likely to be
pretty beaten up! ;-)

One of the biggest mistakes I ever made in my entire life was to
sell my Argonaut 509 (+ 405).
I sure wish I had it back.
I used to take it to the beach too:  Isle of Mann, Corsica, Elba,
etc. and then run Field Day contests running off of my
motorcycle's battery.  You can't do that with many rigs these
