    yes but the ingenuity it took to create them makes them attractive. It's kinda like "She's ugly but boy can she cook":)

    I wonder if it would load up on 160m?

    In the early 80s the was a call at the carpenters local in Santa Rosa [ about 50 miles north ] for the Golden Gate , I had the lowest number on the list , and held up the call-out , because I wanted to know what carpenters were doing on the Golden Gate , many others were getting excited while I was asking .
    It turns out the job was scaffolding for the painters , scaffolding was in the carpenter union .
    I turned it down , because it sounded boring , the others thought I was nuts , they said it was a life-time-job , they start to sandblast & paint at one end and work there way to the other , then start over .
    It only took a few hours to do a days work , for the carpenters / scaffolding , and we could hang out in San Fransisco , or what ever [ as long as we were there for the few hours a day / on time ] , that sounded even more boring .
    Maybe I was nuts .
    Well the next day the 1st call-out was for Lucas Ranch - George Lucas , I still had the lowest number , so I took that job , last me for 3 1/2 yrs. was best carpenter job I was ever on .

    Close. My landlady/roommate's grandfather and his brother worked on the 59th ST/Queensboro bridge. The brother was lost and never seen again. Hi iron, nah. I'll take my old job, thank you.
