Probably have to be in person - my rigs are all old and busted (well, at least old...) - I haven't been on anything other than a cellphone for a long time - though I really hope to get something going again at some point. N4FFD is the call, just in case I suddenly get the bug. Where do you generally operate?
I may start trying to get some gear back together in a year or two. I was never very successful with HF, and my general ops were on 2M, but I have friends down south all over 220 and up, and there is my motorcycle comm system to think of... I may just get myself something in the tiny wavelengths again.
Religiion on the air... ugh. It should be considered the same as re-broadcasting. I was, however, married at my wife's home with three pastors, all three of which were hams. We used to kid them that their antennas were cross-polarised :-)
Thanks for the note - hope to meet up on the air somewhere sometime.
