It is amazing how many ham's are into Cub's :shock: I am VE9RHS and when active I can be found in any of the DX blocks in USB and of course with the fist -- got to keep in practice. I haven't been all that active over the last 3 years. Lost all my antennas 3 years ago including co-ax to an ice-storm, finally got it all fixed except for the antenna switch and bingo - lost em all again this past February's ice storm. My TH3-DX - 20 meter element snapped in half the 15/40 and the 10 m all bent out of shape. The ice ripped all the dipoles out as well. Still have yet to get em fixed.

Maybe this summer.

Lately however, I find myself too immersed into the Manual Server, CubFest 2004, Ellie and Jethro and the never ending search for implements - especially a potato picker!

I think I am going to put up my other web page on my isp account though. All of that was dedicated to Ham and my QSL Manager hobby.

What a great looking cub. I started my "51" last week. I just hope it turns out half as good. It's my first restoration project, so wish me luck.

Basketcase: When it's done hopefully you can change your ID to "Showcase", right?

Jeff: I only hope. Right now it seems the further I go the worser it gets. I think IH had the weakest bolts in the world. Since I started I have broken 8 or 9 including 1 head bolt while torqueing to 25lbs. Now you know why the name Basketcase fits me. :?
