Thank You, Gentlemen,for your comments. I believe the "satellite community"
are some of the best communicators.
Funny Story : I went off "half-cocked" and bought the IC-7300 radio. Soon,
I realized my mistake. Don't know what I was thinking. "Thonk" on my stupid
head. Complaining bitterly, swearing to buy the IC-9100, a "big" box,
showed up at my house. Inside, was a IC-9100. My YL, K3FXX, couldn't
stand my "bitching" anymore, and bought me the radio. I'm still "crying".
WHO is the "luckiest" man in the world. God Bless her.
Best to You All.
