    Tried to raise an NESer for 10 minutes then skanned the channels to see what's going on. Everyone sounds like they are from a Texas truck stop and only want to hear themselves talk. Oh well, back in storage it goes.

    I remember during the height of the last cycle I used to talk to the same group of guys in TX every day up above 40 on SSB. They sounded like they were down the street. No echo mikes or beeps, either.

    Hey Bandit! This is Little Beaver... Put your foot to the floor, we got your backdoor and I'm clear!

    Use to be into it back in the day. Had quite the system, a "President Washington" IIRC with Echo, ping, and all kinds of add-ons. If was fun, but I was 16. Now, I have one in the work truck, mostly for traffic and a good laugh. Some of the over the road truckers can be a hoot to listen to. They can ramble on for hours w/o actually saying much at all.

    Central MA will be tough, but I'm game.

    I have them at work. If your ever going up 91 north past exit 3 in Vt (2nd half of the week), say hi. Might take a little searching, but Channel 37 and 21 are the two we use here. If its on and I'm inside, I'll say hi.
