      Just a day in the park !     April, 2013


There is a great sense of accomplishment when you make a contact several thousand miles away with just 5-10 watts (or less) and some Home Brew antenna or a piece of wire cut just right.  Doing so teaches one how to get by with the basics just in case, should the need arise.  Make ‘em listen for you !.
