Congrats man!


Thanks AD, yes he did and he's NOT a goblin in disguise. Actually a very knowlegeble man and we could have talked for hours once we got started. And I think Id still be there if I didnt have to work last night. Got started on passive repeaters and I was all ears

To all, thank you for the encouragement. It is funny we have more extras than techs, but thats why I left SB and call here the new summer home. Lots of actual doer's, not a lot of couch commando.

Well, Im happy the BS and couch commandoes stay out of here. I just reached the point I couldnt read or respond to it any longer. This site defines the difference between the wanna be gun collectors and "others" from the people who actually get out and do something.

Better to have 100 who know what they are doing, than 10,000 who are just talk

YMMV:)
