    It will. DX has been weird the last few days here. Been getting some good stuff at night like now. Not much on currently but there has been. Talked to someone near you the other day. Let me look their numbers up to see who it was. And you did good on the tuning if it's low like that. Good job man!! Told you it wouldn't be that hard to tune at least! Glad you got it up and running. Now you need a good little amp!!

    Good deal!! I'm partial to my Icom 746. I also have a kenwood ts140s that I am in the process of rewiring a new mic for. But the Icom 746 is my main radio. It does the job for me on both am and SSB. I am on SSB 99.9% of the time anyhow. At any rate hope you get a good deal on it if you get it. And have it sent out and tuned and aligned by a good tech!! Again, this is JMHO. Good radios those cobra 2k's. They rock on SSB when setup right.

    Sorry, I have been absent for a bit. I still got somethings going on with my parents right now and don't have much time to play the last few weeks.

    I did notice that my SWR's have gone up a bit since I installed the antenna or maybe I did something different when checking them the other day. Still under 1.5. I have also had my radio worked on and added a little blue box to the mix. Still no time to play right now but hope to catch some of you on the air soon.
