Re: The rythme of the beat!

Thanks Cliff for your most "intelligent" comments!!!  I have
extended myself toward having a fairly good satellite setup,
worked a lot of good DX in the past on birds like Oscar-13,
mode-B, mode-J, mode-L, and CW.  My attention to detail
using good CP high-gain antennas and low-loss heliax transmission
lines has served me well.

I am a little amazed sometimes when I hear new ops--who have
somehow made an ISS packet contact on an old bent corroded
Ringo attached to the backyard fence, can consider themselves
at the "all-time peak" in their satellite experience.  Who knows,
perhaps they actually are--- in a humorous vein.  But there's
always something new and exciting to learn, that will inherently
keep Amateur Radio fresh and alive for those who work at it.

Enjoy Ham Radio!
