    Found a piece of wood paneling in my shop and made this wooden version today. At least I have a correct version now for my own call :)

    We've come a long way Fred as your "MACHINE" proves it !!! Our ancestors used a wooden mallet and chisel or even before that a sharp stick and a clay tablet !!! Technology is truly COOL !!! :)

    I know you now have the slashed zeros in call signs, but what about a slashed zero in the upper table for consistency ? Is that possible ? I Just prefer slashed zeros whenever possible... guess it comes from being a programmer for many years and always using them to prevent possible code errors...

    Well folks, this has been a fun project. So far about 40 lucky hams have received or ordered a copy. I had to suspend order taking today due to an old back injury which flared up which prevents me from operating the machine for more than a few minutes at a time.

    There are still about 15 orders in queue and these will be completed this week as I'm enlisting an assistant. Beyond that, we don't exactly know when we'll be able to make some more of them.

    I really love seeing the photos of the plaques in their new homes.

    Thanks to all,

    -fred
