It's been a while!  I'm trying some CQ AMs on 21.430 Mhz.  Anyone in New England or the west Coast should be able to work me.

It was squirrely at times but not too bad when I would get a solid signal.

i was gonna try getting on, too, but when i went to tune my amp up, discovered it don't like 15 meters too well and i guess starts oscillating, key it up and get the tuning just right it starts putting out 100 watts worth of something, no matter how much power i am driving it with, if there's even a signal driving it at all.

I heard IIA calling cq about an hour or so ago and I tried to get the Junkston 500 tuned up and found the grid current way lower than it needs to be.

Sumpthin crapped out.  Huh
