I will always enjoy the many memories of our time doing flood relief communications at Grundy Bible Institute at Grundy, VA, in the mid 1970's with W4CZ and KM4X. After several days and nights we could scarcely talk, and finally collapsed in a heap of laughter after Bill ID'd us on the 75M emergency net as "Gravel Bundy Institute". We have joked about that ever since!
