Yep... sure nuff...... W5SJ, strawberry jam, is a fugitive from two
looks like I'll just have to smuggle him back into Texas for the HamCom
in June... especially since he's losing his Texas accent, being down
here in Florida for so long now. Got any suggestions? :-)
Unless this DARN digital TV transition thing on June 12th keeps me from
getting to HamCom, we'll see you again this year. This will be my 11th
or 12 year without missing one. Sure want to make it.
