Re: Greetings from the Canadian West Coast

kayaking can be a gentle exercise, so is a g ood build up. keep up th e working on your strength and endurance and make your back work FOR you .... we will talk after a time-- i need to learn more on the radio thing--am getting ssb for boat. then i need to gwet that a tuner and a pactor modem and whatever else i will need... and go from there. everything is fairly flexible.

Re: Greetings from the Canadian West Coast

I can list step by step what must be done to get up on all things HAM radio. In this case, ssb, for mariners -- no difference just a wave length apart so to speak. That's actually a pretty good funny

I love the digital side of radio because the signals are SO narrow. You can put 10,000 dialogs into an area or spectrum width that one SSB voice signal uses. I'd like you to read:
PACTOR - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are VAST improvements to Pactor. Plus, continuous WX. I just looked up a Formosa Yankee Clipper. My heart melted. Oh my God, they're beautiful. A serious ship, too.

We'll talk soon. Perhaps, I can fly down this month to help with the radio. I have a bunch of FF miles on American.
