    "We chose 3995 Khz (then Mhz)"

    I think every post screwed this up.

    3995 kHz is correct. That would never be MHz, but it used to be "kc."

    3995 MHz or 3995 MC is almost 4 GHz, I don't think screwdriver antennas work up there, where a 1/4-wave whip is less than 3/4" long.:p

    Good bye old friend

    I have only known Don for a half dozen years or so but I am glad to have been able to visit with him and his lovely bride.

    Don, always a gentleman. We will miss you at the grip & grin in Sptember. You Started the whole Screwdriver sensation, but your influnce on others is your true legacy.

    I am pround to say I knew Don, God Bless and Gods Speed my friend.
