    you apparently don't do much weak signal work... at 11,000 miles over the pole into local noise on the DX end, 3dB is the difference between confirmed, and NIL. Those who say 3dB ain't much of a difference are usually repeating what they heard on a DMR talkgroup.

    The Aussies DO have some HEINOUS traffic laws, speed limits and penalties, and any nice twisty bit of road's got a cop waiting around the bend to pull you down. Not a motor enthusiast friendly country... On the flip side, they've got Surf, Roo's, Sheilas, and Lager, so everybody's got to pick his battles.

    True, I don't do weak signal work anymore. My hearing has gotten worse over the years and I can't hear them like I used to.

    The phrase "power behind the throne" refers to the ARRL that informally exercises the real power of a high-ranking office, such as a body like the FCC.

    Except that wasn't the way Incentive Licensing, for one thing, went, Bert.

    State governments here use traffic fines to prop up their budgets. Last year my state raised $400 million in traffic fines. I cant say I am happy with the situation, but its something everyone could easily avoid.


    Where the internet is propagating well today.

    I'd build a 1500 watt exciter. Problem solved

    What about a 60 year old exciter. Nigella Lawson is still rocking it and her food porn is good eats.

    A person I know and trust had his Charger Hellcat at 193 but was running out of road and backed it down.
