Re: Sleeping with a gun under your pillow?

My dad slept with a gun under his pillow even on my parents honeymoon, a little over 9 months later I was born! Now I know why i like guns!

I toss and turn all night, I keep it in the nightstand.

Re: A shortwave radio you can build yourself - and fix yours

I built lots of kits in my high school and college days, actually built my first computer back in 1980.

This is going to be my next rainy day project.

Thanks for the info.

Re: New FT817 rack mount for field use

Just placed my order last night via email. Mike at PortableZero answers emails quickly, even on Sunday night. I was not expecting that!
That is a great confidence builder in Mike and his product.
Will post pictures when I am done putting it all together.
