Please don’t be a stranger....we could use another voice of reason on the frequency, We miss you....even though you never come out for wings!

And just to let everyone know, if for some reason Bob or others decide to not put this misunderstanding behind them, I for one will still be on 450. This frequency does not belong to anyone in particular, and I enjoy talking to my friends here.

Lets hope this is the end of this here and now.

Bob, if you get frustrated and fade somewhere in the ether please send me an e-mail so I can find you, you have and I am sure always will be a good friend, who has taught me a great deal more than I thought I could have ever learned about this hobby and I always want to keep in touch.Charlie N1MUQ
