Hey, there you are.... Where the hell can I catch you repeater wise, tried a couple of the Portland boxes, and the local M.A.R.C. box, no dice, you need a new radio perhaps?

I've been busy at work. But I am free now for the night.

2 meters, you can catch me on the 147.040 repeater of K7RPT and for 440 you can catch me on the N7PIR repeater.

I'll flip over to MARC now.

Crap, snoozed pre-reg, it figures, I'll be hanging with the herd of jackasses at the front desk.

Good way to spend an hour or two, thank God I'm not a midget, those lines would be unbearable! :cheeseandwhine:

Ahh man, ya see, I'm a cheap fucker, vhf only on the ht, 147.420 is where I'll be hanging, or you can just look for a group of big fellas wandering around, we have a tendency to stick out like a turd in a punchbowl wherever we go, you'll be able to spot us easily.

See everyone there, KE7SZC, Bill.

Well, I walked away with a Alinco DR-590 dual bander to replace two rigs in my car (this unit was before they started making crap so I got a good deal) along with a Motorola GTX handheld from fellow HamSexy member N7MAQ so I am now Moto Sexy MUHAHAHAAHAH :)

Nice meeting N7MAQ and Goondaddy and his crew :)
