    I tired to show my girlfriend this video, she's still calls me a nerd, I think if she hears me call CQ one more time I might be finding a new place with my radios lol. Cool video, I need to get myself a QRP setup for field day. 73

    You have to start out with a ham radio in your bedroom and break them incorrectly!!

    Better yet have one in your car, I had a rig in my Corvette on my first date with my XYL.

    Clearly an XYL gets a lot of calls.....seems almost everyone wants to talk to them.

    Do you think it was the rig or the Corvette that got the gal?

    We have a tabletop shortwave. All cool until Brother Stair comes on...talk about a mood killer. :D

    My wife is a newly minted ham. Passed her Tech/General/Extra and promptly became a VE. I'm quite proud. The Extra was a real challenge for her and she passed it first try. She studied hard for several months to not just pass the test, but to understand and comprehend the material. Now it's my job to get her a proper setup in "her" the corner of the shack.

    Suddenly it became configuring everything...times two. She wants her own HF rig, her own V/U rig. Oh, and "I think I'd really like to work satellites, the ISS and try moon bounce, can you look into that for me?" "Sure dear, I'll get right on it.."

    Many hams out there would LOVE to hear the XYL say "Honey, when are you going to get MY RIG and antennas set up, I really want to get on the air"

    Be very careful what you wish for. The "honey-do" list may grow in ways you NEVER imagined! :)

    So called nerds that are educated, intelligent and technically oriented are made fun of nowadays. It's disrespectful to be labeled in such a manner.:(

    The WW2/Korean War generation created allot of really neat electrical/electronic stuff that the average person today is clueless about and takes for granted. This generation will have my have my deeply respect.:)

    And there are allot of awesome ladies out there.

    You need a better way to connect to the battery. The alligator clips don't carry current well and the voltage drops, robbing you of power. But it was a fun video. 73... Dave, K4TO
