Hi John,

Well, I guess I missed the point of the statements made, and 
ASSUMED  one was talking about hamsat xmissions, not higher powered 
stations...not the first time I've screwed up!
My apologies....

I just loved landing on carriers...did it in from 1943 until I 
retired. ....Landed on a carrier on 31 Jan 1967, as I remember USS 
ORISKANY, returned to NAS Alameda on 31 Jan and retired  on 1 Feb 
after 24 years .. Every time I see or "hear" a two plane section go 
over, I get green with envy!!
