Hi Guys:

Nice to see Allen, Brett, Gary and John already on the list
here.......hopefully the rest of the gang will straggle their way over here in due course!!

With the addition of the New ETON-100 which arrived here today from
Washington State........my ULR STABLE now consists of the following
Radios.......

SONY SRF-59..............................2 Gary Debock Aligned/Tuned Up
Models .

SONY SRF-39 Prison Radios.........2 Gary Debock Aligned/Tuned Up Models.

SONY SRF-T615...........................1 Factory Stock Model from JAPAN.

ETON-100.....................................1 Gary Debock Aligned/Tuned Up
Model.

Hope to add more Rigs as they become available.........or they find me!!!!

I will be heading to the ODXA RADIO CAMP next weekend (April4-6)...and all
of the above radios will be going with me.....should have enough ULR's
there to let Everybody try one out!!!! Maybe we can convert a few people at
the camp and sign them up for this new reflector as well!!

At one point of my "CRAZY COLLECTING CAREER"....I owned over 500 different
Transistor Radios from the 1950's and 1960's....the little Pocket
Transistors we all grew up with. Many of these sets were NON WORKING
sets....but were collected just for the Fun and Beauty of the Early sets
from Sony, Toshiba, Zenith, Hitachi etc. That collection of Transistor
Radios has been sold over the Years.....but I fear I may be on the way to a
NEW COLLECTION......of "ULR's"....which I guess are just a Newer version of
the Old Pocket Transistors!!! What a vicious circle....

Anyway.......that's what I'm using here for ULR DX.....but I must admit
that I tend to stick with the T615 Sony for most of my DX....as the Digital
Readout makes the whole exercise so much more enjoyable. Maybe the New
Eton-100 will prove just as nice with it's Digital Readout and 200
Memories. It's little bigger and HEAVIER than the T615 however.....it still
fits into your pocket....but it will make the Fabric SAG a little! HIHI.

As Gary mentioned we got our ETON-100's for a ridiculous Price of $27.01
via an EBAY Auction......Right Place....Right Time for once in my Life!!
HAHHAHHAHA...

Unfortunately I have been experiencing a Loud BUZZ at my QTH for the last
week or so......don't know if it's something here in the house...or one of
my Neighbours.....haven't tracked it down yet. Only noticeable when I
orientate the ULR's in a NORTH/SOUTH direction. Hope it either goes
away....or I can at least track it down and remedy it!!

OK Guys...lets fill up my Mailbox with ULR Postings!!!

73...ROB.
