Years ago, you could climb the boom, but I sorta doubt they let you anywhere near that stairway that goes up the top of the arm anymore.  I vaguely remember hearing about one field day, years ago, where someone actually mounted a Tri-Band beam up there but they'd probably throw 'em in jail now that it's become a full blown park with rangers and everything.

GE Wayne,
 
We have 160 yes responses  http://www.4sqrp.com/kits/SS40/poll_vote%20display.php  I think that's enough to warrant another run. Dunno when I'll get around to ordering parts.  Not so sure abt the Magic Box, I thought I had put a poll on thqat page to, but now see that I hadnt, darn.  Better do that soo and before we make as decision on it.

Wish I could join, maybe next year... 
But this year.. surprises of rain.. we have gotten 2.2 inches this week...
for us.. that is 20% of the annual precip. All slow, and gentle. Nice for 
the pastures, and gardens... great for wheat planting, not so nice for
camping. Good for setting up for hunting. 

Have a blast, looking forward to the reports too, 

Have a great time,

If the message is in rtf format, I see a large first line and vy small
subsequent lines. The additional lines are also wide spaced. It sure makes
reading emails exasperating. This seems to have happened with the new Yahoo
changes. Plain text looks fine.

This occurs with all Yahoo groups, not just Four State.

If no one else is seeing it, I'll keep looking for some setting speciific to my
situation.

TIA for any info.
I have become accustomed to some of messages on lists that now allow other than plain text to look awful, some of them to the point of being unreadable. Yahoo costs us nothing. We get what we pay for.

Terry, I read my mail online off of Yahoo! Mail. No problems for me! A few color options thrown in for good measure.

I only used Outlook when I was in the work force. Tried Thunderbird and Express and didn't care for it.

This note from Wayne was RFT and looked just fine.  So have several others that I just double checked. It's beginning to look like the problem may be with font colors rather than just rtf formats. 
 
Anyone else seeing it that way on your monitor?

Sounds like a great weekend to be in a tent, maybe a little cold at night!  Gotta make sure to bring my blanket!  For those of you who've never been to Brutus before, I'm going to try to monitor both the Pittsburg 146.940 repeater (91.5 PL tone), as well as the Chanute repeater (actually at Walnut) - 146.745 (100.0 PL) while I'm there, so if you need directions, or just want to chat to pass the time, feel free to give a shout!  I'm planning to leave Iola at around 2pm, which should put me getting in there at around 3:30pm or thereabouts!

Looking forward to seeing all of you!
