I hear something in there, it's pretty weak. Might be pescadores ...

I still have one of those! I haven't fired it up in many years but it's still intact. I'm hanging onto it for now. I remember when I was a Novice we were limited to 75 watts DC INPUT, which meant this rig put out 40 watts at most. It did amazingly well for me; I used it for a few years after upgrading to General class and probably worked 40 countries with it on CW.

Oh yesss ... that robot has surfaced in other TV shows now and then. They must have it in a museum some place now.

There was a station on 7542 a couple months ago sending Morse "5 5 5 5 5" ... but it disappeared just after I posted something here about the beam heading I got on it. Coincidence? I guess we'll never know.

The Chicago Blackhawks Band are friends of mine. Thanks for the Blackhawks drawing, jFarley! Tom Grassman, the guitarist, has that very drawing painted on his guitar.

That sure would be fun to prowl through!

(or perhaps after taking a toke?)
With his drill at full throttle
Breached a good vacuum bottle,
And released all the magic blue smoke...

Hey, that belongs in the DXHPDS!
For those of you who aren't radio amateurs who predate the 1980's, that's the DX Hoggery and Poetry Depreciation Society.

I heard that at 2319Z. It was very loud here, S9+20. Unfortunately, I had to leave at 2330Z and was away from home for four hours.

Based on what he said, it appears he didn't pay anything for the tubes. So in his case, all he's lost is the expected tubes. He said four were shipped and two were damaged? Then he still has two good ones. What do you expect for nothing? Rubber biscuit?

The sender is the one who lost most in this case. If he were willing to give them away, I imagine it isn't a huge loss for him, either.

It's a shame that two good tubes were destroyed, though.
