  Interested and ask questions.
  Acknowledge the statement but move to a new topic.
  Have no clue about Ham Radio.
  Call you a geek, nerd, etc..

Spotlight Mark - KJ7BS
Mark - KJ7BS My modest station consists of a Kenwood TS-850S/AT, a ICOM IC-706MKIIG, and Elecraft K2 S/N 0539 and fits in the spare room closet. The antenna tuner is MFJ-986 Differential-T tuner for the AL-811H amplifier and the IC-706MKIIG. I use an MFJ-784B Tunable DSP Filter to my Kenwood SP-31 station speaker. There are three computers in the shack but most logging and contesting is done on the laptop. I use Ham Radio Deluxe for general logging and WriteLog for contesting. I operate mostly CW and belong to FISTS International (# 2972) and Straight Key Centruy Club(# 2240). The only antenna at shack is a Cushcraft R-7000 vertical. The K2 goes portable with me for QRP fun. See you on the bands.
