I have a minor RF problem on my 2M rig. It is a old converted GE Phoenix, connected to a Diamond X30 antenna in the attic. I did not have a problem before. My wife went out and purchased a new hair dryer. The GFI on the hairdryer plug must be an el cheapo Chinese type. When I key up, the damn thing starts to chatter line crazy.

Now, I usually listen, so it is no big deal. So I decided to have a little fun with this. When she was in the bedroom, I decided to key up and actually speak to the guys on the local repeater, and actually tell them what was happening. They got a kick out of it. I spoke low, so she could not hear me. After a few seconds, "Vinnie ............................... !!!!!".

LOL
