I do want to express my thanks !
To Mr Larry AB0AH Mr Jim N5IB and each and everyone else who had anything at all to do with the Bayou Jumper Kit !
I personally can't imagine such an endeavor !
If happiness is a barrel of monkeys !
I bet rounding up sorting packaging , sending out and all the other things !
I bet that could be like a barrel of snakes :)
I just want to say that !
I am Very happy and appreciative for it ever having been :)

Sorry to hear of the retirement of the Bayou Jumper. I was hoping that there were still a few kits in stock. I guess I'll have to find someone that wishes to sell theirs. That is an excellent rig. Perhaps I will find one somewhere.
Thanks for the e-mail. Sorry to hear about the health problems. I am 69 over weight and have a few problems. Still kickin. If you you visit my QRZ page you will see the Bayou Jumper In all of its glory. It must have been a fascinating and dangerous time for the OSS. I have worked 22 states with it on a fan dipole that is only 22 feet high. sorry I have to make this short but wife needs me. Be happy to talk to you again at length about BJ.

I wish I had known about this radio when some friends and I
became fascinated with Churchill's Spies of Netflix fame. I have
decided to set up a Cricket 30 to duplicate the B2 radio. Sorry
about your health issues. I have been cleaning up after medical
disasters since 1972. My first wife was a multiple cerebral
hemorrhage patient (seven all together). My current spouse has and is a year out of endometrial cancer.
Would love th get some additional input from you.

I was sorry to see the retirement of the Bayou
Jumper. Of all the kits I have ever built since 1964 this one
was the most fun. I want to thank Jim (N5IB), Dave (NM0S) and
Larry Hastings for designing and kitting a fine radio. I want
to thank all the individuals who took time to Elmer those who
were having problems or just shared ideas with others. Thanks
to the Club for making high quality kits available to us. On
my QRZ page I list my Bayou Jumper as my primary rig and my
IC-718 as my back up. I don't operate much due to health
problems but will make an effort to do more operating with the
BJ. Hope to see you on the air.
