If we should ever not see the infamous Ballsmacker broadcasts as frequent as we have every Friday evening for the last two years, they are probably taking a rest? But who knows? A big thank you for a wonderful polished shows every Friday Night! The music was always good and always different! The themes were always fun! And give yourself kudos for sending EQSL in cards in a timely matter! Always looked for the Elton John song generally in each set! And the best part is it is indeed Pirate Radio which rocks! The HF Underground folks are the best! BIG THANKS again from KMD3HR in the deep south, but originally from mid atlantic! Will Ballsmacker still be around???? One hopes so? Believe it or not, I did not get all the EQSLs as conditions were not always good enough to recieve, but probably have 75 percent of them. Anyone on here have them all?
