1. You're one that will get a kick out of this ....

About 25-30 years ago (I was still in California) I remember I had an hour + long ragchew with a ham that said he was Jim Morrison's uncle. Probably on 40 meter SSB. I don't remember his name or call (now I'll have to go dig out my old logs and see if I noted him) but we talked about the Doors and their music for a long time. I think he was in Florida or Alabama maybe. Just a little bit of ham trivia you would appreciate.

Edit to add: I found it in the log! I had almost all the details wrong. It was on 3/24/1989 and it was with a "Doc" Morrison, W5JMA (that call now held as a vanity call by someone else) in Austin, TX. It was on 10 meter SSB (28.800 MHz) from 1647Z-1727Z that morning. From California to Texas on 10m we must have been at a lot better sunspot number than we are now. Can you believe I am so anal I still have those logs!

2. Major kick!!!

That is serious 10 meter dx!

From what I understand, the bands are all rather dead right now.

It is great that you still have that logged after all these years, for radioheads like me to appreciate!

Well, things can only go up from here!

BTW, was looking at info on the unreleased ICOM IC 705, which looks like the sw listeners radio to end all swl radios.

Estimates on price are around $1,500, which leaves me out.

I can always dream...

Thanks again!
