You know what's cool? Emailing back and forth with ham radio operator/electronics enthusiasts all over the world. I just emailed a gent in the Netherlands about a project he had done that is similar to something I want to do.
A couple years back I corresponded with a gentleman in Germany about making some radio modifications. He tested the modification in his radio and gave me the results. I did the same thing to my radio (FT897) and had great results.
Neither of them I've ever talked to on the radio, but the fraternity of ham radio allows this to happen!
Fortunately, both of them had excellent English.
(picture is from rigpix.com...but I found it on some other site...) It's a Yaesu FT897 like mine.

If you are a semi-regular reader of this blog...please comment on this post!
I think practically everyone is following me on facebook.com now.
I'll post some stuff here, but am curious who I'm leaving behind by posting on Facebook!
Don't be shy now! Commentary is acutally NEEDED.
