"America's quiet warriors are the legion of ham radio operators, 700,000 of them, who are always at ready for backup duty in emergencies – amateur, unpaid, uncelebrated, civilian radio operators, during and after floods and fires and tornadoes. After the 9/11 attacks, hams were indispensable in reuniting friends and families. Most recently it was they who expedited the search for debris after the Columbia Explosion , and right now, at this moment, they are involved in homeland security to a greater degree than you would want me to make public."

Boy, I haven't thought of Sharkey's in a LONG time! One of my friends that moved to that area from Silicon Valley had a wife that "discovered" she had a gambling problem after they moved to "The Ranchos", there. She lost a GOB of money at Sharkey's. 401k kinda money (before there were 401ks). Twice. About 6 months apart. Late 70's it was and they almost divorced over it.
Have fun at the tables !

Swans and Drakes do NOT
belong in lakes. Maybe some Heathkits do, depending on who built them
Thanks for all the great links. I checked out those sites, but so far the only repeaters I can hit are associated with the tahoe ara. When I finally get a place to call home, ill have an outdoor antenna hopefully.
Won't be doing too much gambling.

I am a freaking bus driver, yapping on the radio, playing with antennas and having FUN.
However, in a given situation, I will surrender my knowledge, my equipment and experience, that is what real hams do....
Thanks, I checked into the Northern Nevada Noon Net (or something) today on the Mt. Rose repeater.
I wonder if you can still drive up to the top of Mt. Rose. That used to be a good location for VHF contesters. It was always a challenge to work Mt. Rose from the Bay Area, but we usually managed.
