Hello from New Jersey.


Hello, I'm recently disabled. I'm trying to keep my sanity, coping with not being able to do what I once took for granted.

I had previously been into CB and freebanding back in the early 1990's so I'm not a total noobie. emoticon
I had a Galaxy II feeding a King Bee 250, cut back to dead key no more than 25 watts AM. That fed a Texas star 1200. It was quite a setup back in the day. emoticon This was my mobile.
The house I had a few base rigs feeding a Palomar 300 going to a Moonraker beam. By no means a big setup, but if I could hear them, I could work them.

I recently picked up a good working Kenwood TS-440 SAT. No dot problems yet. $325 USD. shipped. I think I did good on that deal. emoticon

I have a slinky dipole up, but that will not do. I've been eyeing the Imax 2000 or a pretty reasonable alternative, the S9 V18 18' Vertical Antenna, which is said to be a 20-6 meter antenna, for $35 USD.
