Thanks Rick! I don't have the industrial strength orbit stretcher here, so I won't be able to stretch HO-68 to Hawaii from here ... hihi.
It'll have to be Grand Old AO-7, and I remain hopeful that will happen sometime.

Way to go Tim! I heard the whole thing. You will have to put the "orbit
on HO-68 to work #50 on FM mode and QRP! Great Job!
