Re: AO-7 missing



If Lazarus was an Olympic champion,
would it be smart to ask him to better his record time?

We can make a lot more noise together,than in the 70`s.
Lets be smart.
If it`s realy strong,and seems to be in good condition,
make one qso for the books,and leave it at that for a while.
In the meantime one can train patience at UO-14,
thats what i do,with pleasure.
