and I did get back on simplex from the house, but only Dan could hear me. Guess we can't go HT to HT across 30 miles, eh?

I had to go to the airport last night to pick up my wife and this coincided with the sked. Sorry about that Tim.

Hey, sorry I bailed on you Chris & Bill... when those other guys jumped in I didn't get a chance to say 73's, but I had to run down to the bottom of the driveway, the Scout was idling awaiting my return.. we got about 8" up here.

We seem to have lost our 145 time slot, as if we had one... but as people's rigs get better all the action lately seems to be on simplex anyway, which is pretty sweet and just fine by me. From my house it's pretty rough to hear anyone down at Stevenson, I think it's just too close to the first range of mountains and the propagation must be more line of sight. As Ige and Dave drove further away from me, into the vast flat lands, their signals only improved and we could all lower power.

Dave & I were full quiet on 1 watt using the truck radios, and even with both of us on HT's were still very readable. so cool, this ham stuff, too bad no one really understands how it works.
