I've found the fuel for some QSO action! Pretty smooth and VERY dangerous!

Yeah , I know Steve. Fell in the radio room. Discretion is not my strong suit. Pretty bad bruise on my lower back and the xyl is pissed. Worked  a lot of friends on 28.370 thou ;hadn't qso'd in a long time. My own dumb fault, told you it was dangerous!

Well sure, Phil - if you have enough to make you fall down. Wink

Actually fired up the Heathkit Injuns yesterday morning on the good wife's suggestion. Worked Dale/KW1I on 40m. He was using his Collins TDO for the first time in quite a while. Never heard it before. Sure sounded great rolling into norther VA from NH at 10-20 over.

The abrupt cool down from the sweltering heat and humidity here in the south is definitely a little reminder that better radio conditions are just around the corner. Plenty more heat coming, I'm sure. Still, it's nice....

nervous about shine. I'm told that they have to be very careful to discard the first portion of the batch because of deadly impurities. Hope they do!

Well, one things for sure, I'm definitely good for a while with alcoholic beverages. One reason why I stay away from the liquor store, but if I do, I try to limit it to a pint only. No such luck this time as they seem to only sell moonshine in fifth size. Like I said, this particular brand is dangerous because it is extremely smooth... goes down like water... obviously.

I think next time, I'll use Arizona Arnold Palmer Half & Half for QSO fuel. Tastes great but less dangerous!
