    Work "across the pond" on Top Band !

    I'll never forget my first DX contact on 160m 48 years ago . . . it was with Stew W1BB, and I was running a genuine 10 watts input (all we were allowed back then, although I soon realised none of the DXers stuck to that!)

    I still get a buzz from working long distances on Top Band . . . it's just too easy on all the higher bands!

    Dust underneath their equipment. . .

    There's probably stuff actually living beneath all that crud.

    Not cool - mess with that stuff at your own peril.

    Posting here is a privilege, not a right.

    I did... an Icom IC-22S (2m 10W FM synthesized squawk box). It quickly became obsolete (the band plan changed). A modification made it usable again. Then, it needed another modification to be usable again (the band plan changed again). It's been on the shelf since the 1990s (when CTCSS became the norm). Today, it's worth about $10 but, I can't afford to pay someone $10 to take it off my hands. :p:rolleyes:
