Turned on to a S-5 signal, Wall of VooDoo "Mexican Radio".
Killer signal, great audio for SSB.

I still use a old PRO-2021. I like it. Lots to listen to here if you are into that sort of thing. Air traffic, water bombers, baby monitors, still the RCMP, I think.

I have an older Spilsbury, mine is green. They're fairly common up here, but there's fewer and fewer trappers all the time. There's other "bush nets", some are fairly large and formal like the one on 7.093, others are far less formal and concern those in the immediate community. Many are in Inuktitut, the Inuit language. Satelite phones are becoming more common as they become less expensive.

Damn. Double damn.
I loved the guy, although I never met him. I picked my Ham call in honor of him.
First Tom Kneitel, now Wayne Greene. Ham radio is rapidly running out of cool old people and leaving us with the various poindexters and four eyes that populate the bands now.

7425 used to be the popular Pirate freq. My first card ever is from Voice of Laryngitis there. Think I heard KIPM there, as well.

Got RML in with a nice signal into northern Canada.

Hearing it weak in northern Canada. English accent voices.

I dunno about the Bunneh being involved; this transmission got heard by more then three people so it CAN'T be him.

About S-5 on a quiet band into Northern Canada. Nice to hear!

Had them in only strong enough to tell there was a signal there. Dang, I really want to hear this one! Hopefully as fall conditions improve I'll get another chance.

Had them in for Led Zeps "Kashmir". About S-5 over S-3 noise. Pretty good audio for SSB. Always a treat to hear!

Killer S-9+ signal, surely a sign that winter conditions are approaching. That and the fact that I have fantastic Northern Lights out tonight.
The usual great audio with Blondie "Heart of Glass".
Always great to hear an old friend!

I had a R1000 years ago, loved it. It's a very highly regarded receiver. I'd reccommend it.

I had them in about S-5 with QRN, unfortunately not strong enough for an I.D. Hopefully I'll get another chance as conditions improve.
