Last time I flew I had steel toe boots on and that created a big deal until they found the guy behind me had a switch blade. Priorities changed fast.

If he was from the South, he used it to clean his fingernails.

I was bored in the lo-o-o-o-ong queue in the Orlando, FL, when an uniformed lady asked me to go directly to the room (I saw how her brain crinkles moved when she tried to spell my name). There I took off my shoes and jacket, sat down to relax, also they gave me a smooth massage with light exercises, as the result instead of standing and waiting I passed fast and got some pleasure.

well- i can't offer a Thompson frog hunt...BUT i do have a place where i can piss off my porch and shoot at the sun all day long and nobody cares.
we could have a good time at KD2XA/Adirondack shooting chipmonks, crows and toads with .30 caliber battle rifles some time. of course i transmit AM from there too.

There are several in Cuba, hanging out mostly on 160.  Castro apologist/propagandist Arnie Coro CO2KK is the most prominent one - believe he even has an old buzzard broadcash xmitter set up for 160.

I used to hear a lot of Cuban AM'ers on 160 in the middle of winter when the QRN was gone.  Most were too pissweak to copy, and had a lot of FM on their unstable carriers.  I remember working a couple, but although they seemed to copy me OK, it always took several exchanges to me to get their callsign and name.

I figured they ran 25 watts or less and had to build their rigs from scratch using what parts were on hand, most likely discarded tube type BC receivers.  Haven't heard them for the last year or two.

Tubes are *very* scarce in Cuba, and any BC receivers using same have, in my experience, had all of their tubes die of low emission.  There is a fairly active solid-state homebrewing community amongst the hams in Cuba, however.  They might have also been using surplus military equipment.  I saw a complete ART-13 in an antique shop in Havana but they wanted $500 or so, IIRC, for it.

Most of the guys you heard probably got locked up by Castro for talking to the imperialists  :ctf:

There are a few guys who hang around here that Castro should have no problems with. :twisted:
