Piglet #170 has arrived

Wayne Dillon
 

Good afternoon guys 'n' gals
Pig Rig #170 is in the birthing crate, it could be a longish process but I bet by next weekend it's uttering a healthy oink or two. Just got to decide how the sty is going to look, but I feel I may go for the TT enclosure (sorry...sty).

Re: To order a Pig Rig or not to order???

Mike,

Oh my!!!! Never heard of such a dilemma. It certainly never raised it's ugly head around my shack. Maybe you could fall back on the quote by a famous mountaineer when asked why he climbed a mountain, "Because it is there"! If I am ever faced with that dilemma that is what I am going to rely on to get me over the hump!!!

| Thot my problem was solved. The next day I agn got a report I was xmitting all
over the 40 meter band. Listen on my KX3 and sure enough my troubles are back.
Connect dummy load. Still the same. Change keyer to straight key mode and viola
now only xmitting on 7030.7. Go bk to using paddles and all OK. Turn rig off and
reconnect ant, and turn on rig. Now am all over the band. Switch to straight key
mode and all is Ok. So now go back to using keyer with paddles and all Ok. Try
turning rig off and on. Agn I must go to straight key first and then to paddles.
So something in the key line is causing this! Rats I hate to have to remove it
again from the enclosure! 72 George/W2BPI

OzarkCon attendees:

I just received a note that the Stonecastle has lowered it's rate for their
Jacuzzi rooms and Executive Suites. The price for a Jacuzzi room is now $95, and
the price for an Executive suite is $115. These are ~$25 reductions from the
earlier price. Thought you might want to know in case you'd like to upgrade.

Usual disclaimers...
