  3. Unfortunately to post here I have to disable browser security and that is not a safe or desirable condition.

    I've tried all possible configurations to avoid that.


  4. Hey Dude, now you've gone and offended me. I just bought a Yaesu FT-891 with a remote head. It was the lowest priced 'proper' HF radio around and the newest design with great reviews for its receiver and DSP.
    I've been with you for about 5 years now and all I ever bought was your lousy Solder Smoke book.
    Seriously, great show guys, thanks for the entertainment. The book was good too.
