I am surprised to hear so much controversy over Jim's posting of the RTCM and the service provided. I was wondering if you read Jim's PS and with all due respect to the guy that has given so much to this program let this string die. Thanks Jim for the posting I have great respect for you.

> How the Appliance op gets on 440....Hop in family hooptie, drive to AES or HRO.Buy a $50 baofeng/TYT/Wouxun. Ask dweeb behind counter to program it for you. Buy a MFJ magmount with connector already attached. Get on WINSYSTEM and ask for radio checks HOURLY. Announce your "First Personal" and that your on the side.Tell everyone how amazed you are that a little radio is making it all the way to Ohio and that they have your meter pegged and sound "wall to wall & treetop tall". For Christmas ask wife to buy you a Mirage LINEAR (with proper cables for the Chinese HT) you can REALLY be the big dawg in town.

Connect the Alinco to your left over 11 meter Super Skyraker 47Db gain Omnibeam and use the tuner to get it to work on 10/15/20/40 meters. (dont even THINK of making flat top wire dipoles).Don't even THINK of buying a old Swan/Drake/Kenwood/Trio rig..might have to actually FIX something...
