    Anyone else watched the new Netflix documentary on Stanislav Szukalski?
    Impressive genius. Tragic life. Unfortunately those two often go together.

    No, I haven't sorry.

    Meanwhile, back on the internet (and I do apologize for the juxtaposition!)...

    off the top of my head, no -- some sort of transmitter triode. Lethal B+ (even compared to our usual, lethal B+ in DHT amps) :)
    Just adds to the panache.

    Don't send @tonyb after me! please?!

    Hmmm......seems some folks are a little reluctant to cooperate. Sure hate to see the forum get out of control like they have in the past
    When they seek vengeance, it's not pretty.

    Went through Polkville MS on way to Jackson MS a few months ago. Of course, I thought of the Forum.

    As the crow flies, I am about 6 miles from Dobbins Air Reserve Base where the Thunderbirds landed on Friday for today's Super Bowl flyover. Yesterday, I heard the planes taking off about 5:30 PM for a practice run over Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Thunderbirds were busy all day yesterday as I heard and saw them several times.
