    My Dad raised chickens throughout the 70's and 80's. Somewhere in the mid 70's he got one of those. There wasn't a day went by that he didn't check the weather several times a day. Even Texas' weather didn't change as much!

    1995 to 1997.

    Pretty much the end of the era when you actually had to know something to work there. At that point it was headed to being just Cell Phone Shack.

    Why do you feel the need to be rude and insulting in your posts? Stop it.

    Why do you feel the need to whine about a post that was obvious humor? Stop it. Are you OK? Do you need a friend? I will have a qso with you if you do.

    Nice article thanks! It brings back a bunch of good memories.

    I owned a couple of those in 1970's and with the built in whip it was pretty deaf. Of course I was 40 miles from the transmitter (162.55 mHz) too.

    I hacked one and hooked it up to my outside coax fed FM antenna and it came to life.

    There was no humor in your post. Your just a rude individual period.

    My condolences. There is a solution to your problem. Its called the block feature. I suggest you take use of this feature and never have to read my humor again.

    Well, since you mentioned it...

    About that post. It wasn’t obvious. And it wasn’t funny. Sorry.

    He wasn’t whining, just asking you nicely.
