had my first QSO using the Cricket built at OzarkCon 2017.  What a hoot!  Nice QSO with KB5ZCR, North of Dallas.   No record setter from NE Oklahoma but it was nice to have a solid QSO with 800 milliwatts. 
Lots of digital warble QRM and an amazingly clear AM broadcast station that made me dig in several times.  
Ive been thinking about mod’ng the Original Cricket into an “A” model.  That would be fun too.
see y’all for Straight Key Night.
