  4. Thanks for another great podcast, Bill. About 38 minutes in I heard a bit of echo. Are you using a CB mic to record the podcast these days?

  5. I think it would be great if both you would make it to Hamvention next year. You have a lot of fans that would love to meet both of you in person. You could give a talk at one of the forums as well.
    btw, congrats on 60 years of radio Pete. Thanks for sharing all of your knowledge.

  6. Congrats on 60 years Pete!

    Def think A soldersmoke Xenia adventure should happen. If nothing, Pete could camp out at Mendelsons, if they're still open, and the others could visit you there! Heck, might make the trip down from the Mitten to shake hands.

    Pete... don't miss out before they close... 1 hour video tour from this year:
