  I realize how little I know but would like to learn more.
  I know some stuff, but realize I need to learn more. I can't really explain it well to anyone.
  I know a lot and can explain it to a 4th grader.

    KK4BH Simple but works for me. IC706MK2G & SM20 mic. Astron RS35M & MFJ 4035MV power supplies. Also MFJ 941D tuner & 812B power/swr meter. Antennas R5 & 40 mtr dipole, also Ringo Ranger 2. Just moved onto 2 acres of land after 20 years in a mobile home park. Talk about being able to "spread your wings." Hope to put up some full wave loops soon. 73 Ken KK4BH
