Re: New Bayou Jumper Owners

Once we make our first QSO with our Jumpers, can we still apply for our Secret Agent Number? I noticed on the application form that it doesn’t have a choice for the new Rev B Blue panel model. Was this done to snag nasty Nazi interlopers, and we have to know to make ourselves a write-in candidate?
This is going to be a blast-and-a-half! I’ll bet some vendor-buyer coordinator at the Hobby Lobby HQs is wondering why they’re suddenly having to order pallet-loads of the raw materials to be transformed into the Official Bayou Jumper Wooden Box Case!
It would be amazingly cool if we could come up with a Bayou Jumper version of the Little Orphan Annie Official Secret Decoder Ring, ala the one featured in the Jean Shepherd movie “A Christmas Story”. Perhaps a 3-D printed model could be hacked up that could be printed locally and/or ordered from one of the on-line 3-D printing vendors.
One of those could even be used to create fine sand molds to make cast metal versions, and if the demand were enough, even make a metal mold for serial production. Hey, we need something to do while waiting for the practice and real secret agent sessions to roll around on January 20th and in March!
