Breadboarding and Mountaintopping


We needed an illustration today.  I was having trouble finding something suitable.  Then the Radio Gods (along with Joe Peltola and the artist N0UJR) provided this.  Obviously I can relate to the breadboard operation. I'm sure Pete can too.  As for the mountain topping, that made me think of Colin, M1BUU.  And of Wes, W7ZOI.
