Re: Sad News.

Sad news indeed. My condolences to the family. I met Jerry a couple times but didn't know him well and it's a shame I won't have that opportunity.

Re: Tools

I tend to agree with this. For consumer grade tools even the chinese craftsman made today is adequate for most home and DIY wrenchers. Most home DIY wrenchers aren't hobbyists like we are though...

Re: How many Model A's is the perfect number?

Re: I plan on shaking things up at the Model A club hubley event today..

In order to draw youth into the hobby many clubs race them on a track like pinewood derby cars. It has resulted in all the old guys ACTING like kids. :p. :D

Re: Model A Amature Radio Operators

KC0REK here. I have a small dual band handheld but haven't really been on air in years. I just don't seem to have the time lately. One of these days I'd like to get back into it some more.
