Re: Homemade fly paper

It seems there is a current to everything, if you can feel it. I didn't make any fly paper today. Instead I noticed that they seem to go home at night. They woke me a little after dawn. I tolerated...

Re: Automated VHF Radio Check On Channel 26?

I went to the website, found the closest transmitters, nothing. A friend anchored next to me tried it also, no response. I did a radio check with my friend. Maybe I don't have enough power? But...
