--- I forgot to mention that i first read about the ULR movement
through the article that Popular Communications did on it back in
April(i think) of this year.I had not heard of it previously.I read
where John Bryant was involved and since i knew John and had met him
a time or two before,i went and bought one of the ULRs mentioned -the
Sony SRF -M37V.I have since bought the M37W version and the Sony SRF-
59 as well as the Eton E-100.I contacted a mutual friend of John,s
and mine,Kirk Allen,who lived in the same city as me,Ponca City,Ok,at
the time.John had told Kirk about ULRs and had given him a SRF-59.I
called John on the phone and we talked about the ULR movement just
before he left for Orcas Island,Wa.John recommened the E-100 to me as
well as Kirk.Kirk and i both ordered an E-100 from Durham Radio
within days of each other.And the rest they say is history:) hi!hi!

this far in just a short year.Just like it has with others on thethis
movement.73 and good dx and good luck for the next year of ULRof
