...and they all look like your grandkids. 



At least I don't have to suffer that kind of reminder very often.

10kHz-30MHz & 60-260MHz possible, for me mainly WX and Aviation (the latter not allowed to forward to the public by law) and some SWL.

So, I have custody of my grand daughter, 14yo. We go to BP each Friday so I can ATM her pocket money and buy Friday lunch. The server gal, about my age, says good on Dad for "making" lunch. I feel good....
