Talk about a flood of memory...

Back in the day, if someone didn't have packet bulletins,
or access to Compuserve via TAPCIS, we could copy the current element set
for AO-10 and AO-13 from VOICE, onto PAPER - and manually edit our data
files for QuikTrak or InstantTrack ... Gosh, how easy it was to make voice
contacts all over the world. QSOs that could go on for many minutes....
I worked more DX with AO-13 than I ever did with HF. I'm just sayin . . .

OK, back to reality - carry on.
   Thanks  /;^)
