I have been waiting for a recliner with a refrigerator in one arm, a microwave in the other, a pillow for my head, adjustable lumbar support, and a relief tube connected to the head..... Wink

I still haven't got a new chair.
But, last week I was off for a couple days. I went into the shack in the morning and 15 meters sounded great. Next thing I know it is dinner time. Went back in and did a little 80 and 160 and it was time for bed. My back was killing me when I pulled the switch.
Next morning my back hurt so bad I didn't even go in the shack. My back hurt for a week afterwards. I ended up using those heat pad things you buy at the drug store to put on sore areas.
And I DON"T have chronic back problems.
I have some heavy expenses this month, so I am putting off the new chair. But, last week I thought about it every 1/2 hour or so.

I thought you said this was a weak signal mode ? I HAVE a weak signal and he still didn't hear me.

FWIW: My callsign is AB8KT

Another option for back pain or to prevent back pain is to have a dual position desk. One button puts it in standing position, one button puts it back in a sitting postion. An hour or so in either postion and I'm ready to switch, both mentally and ergonomically. It's not a mainstream concept, however, and such a desk costs some bucks...
