there will be a pl change coming or an ltr controller.

someone has been screwing w/it the last 2 days.

I also am forgoing putting in the new machine at this time.

***EDIT***

it has come to my attention that there is another 575 machine possibly w/same pl. will have to do further checking as it may just be atmospherics.

Frank, she is nice to look at from that angle but not when she's buzzing you head while working.

 

 

OD, I'm still in the testing phase doing some signal strength readings. there will be an antenna change as an experiment coming very soon. it should be interesting or not yield any real difference. I'm actually hoping it shows a difference.

Okay, John, the equipment is nice, too!

 

Next time that you're up there, bring her (I don't want to ask how you know that it's a her as opposed to a him), something to eat and she'll be your friend for life. )

 

Regards,

 

Frank.
