The Shack The Cockpit
A shack full of old CB radios
Thanks for stopping by!
This is my story... I enjoy DXing, contesting and working special event stations. My country total as ofMarch 2011 is 351. I also enjoy shortwave listening from time to time. I have a collection of over 200 old tube CB radios that I play around with every so often as a second hobby. My elmer was WG2T (Frank) and my technical support comes from my friend Pat, KN2T. Although my name is listed as Paul in my FCC record, I use my middle name (Mike) exclusively.
