OK, you've had your hazing ritual. Jeesh, JD.
Welcome to the Zed. Have fun here, and don't feed the friendly natives.

Welcome to the Zed, Jerry. We don't hear from your part of the state very often around here. If you have time this weekend, stop by the Columbus Hamfest. Talk in on 146.37/97
If you have to worry about the cost of HF e-mail, you can't afford the boat.

Welcome to AR, Jerry! Great accomplishments! Here's a laugh for you...
Personally I languished on 2M for 10 years until the code went away and got my General. Now I lead a group on 40M called the "Breakers" dedicated to preserving the traditions of 11M. My base setup is a vertical with a 4' ground rod and a G5RV along with my ham set, an Icom 718 rig with my two Alpha amps. One is a spare of course. My mobile set is an icom 706 with a 102" whip and an Ameritron mobile amplifier all mounted in my pick-up. 73rds and QSL.
Anyway, seriously, glad to meet you!
When did that become something to be proud of?
