Came from western Massachusetts. Short layover in New Jersy and another stop in Md where I got the 3 call from in 76 or somewhere about. Worked my way south and here I am in Florida. Run an old Yaesu FT-101E into an even older Gonset GSB 201 (1960) vintage, but puts out 800W. Don't drive it hard, only enough to get thru the pileup or over the QRN. Replaced the 101E with an FT-1000mp on 5/31/2010.
When I was in MD. I was an FM buff with all of the great repeaters in Balto. I wished I got the FM suffix (one call later), but when I moved to Fl it turned out to be the perfect call. Causes problems in contests, but I say that the suffix is the same as the state Am a ragchewer and if I have a contact with you, expect an hour plus talking about absolutely nothing and probably everything.
