Re: Memories (was Re: AO-7 Predictability.)

Yes, Jim, 
It's still the  "OCTOPUS MODE" for me... Especially on  FO-29
or AO-7.  So many knobs, so little time ! 

I love it!

Yes, I remember those old receivers.. I had an  SX-96  here, used it with
my boat-anchor transmitters.  Sold it last year, and found  an  HQ-170A. 
It's a better receiver but only does the "old" ham bands.
