Well now I have a little radio in the works.....some call a SOB (shack on a belt)
and it also has a do-dad that tells me where I be at.......well I paid $200 bucks
to have a thing tell me where I am AT.......sheesh! It oughta have a deal that
can read my mind (the clean thoughts anyway) and talk to whoever is on the
other end of the QSO.
This thing, SOB, don't even have a hose connect to use my straight key or
Bug. It also don't do that FT8 deal, guess cuz their ain't no keyboard. I miss
RTTY and wonder where it ran off to?
Ham Radio is just not movin forward but now sideways.......yup, very soon
newbies can just jump in the InteruptNet and get their Ham license. Now, ain't
that where loosing control that made the CB thing gone sideways?
Maybe it's time to clean the contacts on the Spark transmitter so the sun
will not bother my transmissions :-)
