Re: Ma/Com History

I agree with the CommNet name being very brief. In Fact I think, if I dig deep enough, I can find a note pad with that name on it, that was given to attendees to the National meeting they had at IWCE, and telling us about all the great things they were going to do, even as the company was being sold...

Re: 'Base Commander' antenna series by Andrew/Decibel/AS

For years, OK, maybe decades, the ASP680 was my antenna of choice, when I needed a lightweight, low wind load antenna, with gain. At only four (4) pounds, I have never had one fail.

True, those old computers will die someday, but the small hard drives are available on eBay for cheap too, just as old dos computers are. The dos based radio programs, Kenwood, GE, Motorola can be programmed right from the disc, so HD storage isn't that critical. GE aka MA Com still uses dos to prog...
