    Everyone has a project in the works. Some are long term, some are short term. Some improve our on-the-air fun, some are for the time between QSO's. W5IG (Lee) has combined an on-the-air and off-the-air project. His new "Cool Transmitter" isn't exactly an on-the-air item, but it does make things a little more fun in the shack.

    I thought only the British were eccentric. ;)

    The British have nothing on Lee. We call him W5 Inspector Gadget.

    How fun! One little addition I would've added is a faux signal strength meter with a two-digit readout that actually reflects the inside temperature of the freezer or fridge.

    "Ahhhh, that beer was 4-5!"

    I wonder why he chose the Collins logo?

    That's great! Especially so because it's cool both figuratively and literally. That's a 2fer!

    Want one! If my ex-XYL was still around I could make this cold thing out of a frigid-derrière.

    The logo is not Collins. If you look closely it is CQLLINS. Thanks for the comments.
