11. I'm starting to think we are weird

We listen together. We take turns logging stations with the Tecsun PL-880 and mixing cocktails for each other. More than once one of us has headphones plugged into the Skywave SSB of the SRW-710s and yell to the other "PUT ON XXXX Khz!" or something like that.

8. Man, those are beautiful!



The old railroad lanterns always fascinated me, but those are kerosene, iirc.

7. Branding, most likely



Baofeng is a well known and trusted name.

Nice to hear from you!
