Now they're finally getting serious about this storm? Anyway, look for Hurricane Nets,      http://www.arrl.org/news/hurricane-watch-net-set-to-activate-as-caribbean-prepares-for-dorian
I was asked if I liked the 80's pop band The Go-Go's, and I answered that I listened to them, like many other Top 40 pop bands of the time, so Eh. However, I did mention that I did kind of feel sorry for them, since I thought that the band members couldn't have sex. I was then asked, "What do you mean?" My reply was, "Duh... They sing about it themselves, their lips are sealed!".

Thanks Dood. This is where I miss "Monitoring Times" yearly lists of in print copies for the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico freqs. A mighty fine thing for new pirates tempted to try the often empty space between 6910 and 6920 for the crowded Labor Day pirating weekend further up the band. It's a good way to get a big fine, lose your transmitting/production equipment, and in those East Coast states who consider radio piracy a felony, spend up to year or so in a not so plush govt. getaway.

If you like baloney sandwiches and ramen noodles, getting the Knock could be better than Mar-A-Lago. No smoking in modern jailhouses, those packs of Top Ramen are the currency cigarettes used to be. Stock up before you have report for sentencing.

If you ask me, the world has truly turned upside down when you can't smoke in jail.
