Joe, Our best friends live across the street from us.  They had the nerve to tell us they are having a big party, (about 30 people), but we are not invited.  It was what they called a 'Trumpster Party'.  Joe remember, he who laughs, laughs and laughs.

 Dave, are you telling us that you consumed weed yesterday?

We trained on the ANGRC 9 IN SCHOOL BECAUSE IT WAS THE RADIO THEy USED IN Korea.  The waves were able to follow the contour of the terrain; i.e. hills, mountains, etc...  However, the enemy was able to pick up the radio location easier. 

The ANGRC 14 we had manual generators that if we went into combat we could be transmitting about 50 yards away from the radio if necessary.

Those comments from Gene where totally out of line.
It is a political page, but, come on! like Jim said " We are all Brothers here! I have Republican freinds Coworkers that treat me with respect.
I am a good guy. Old Steel worker. Father of four. Those kind of comments are meant to be insulting. Easy to do on the. Internet .
I am not going to eat it. He needs to take that to his democratic neighbor and see how that goes! Face to face!

Harold, I remember the old an/gr 9 sure did like them in our jeeps we could get most of the local stations on them.

I can move again and sit in my computer chair again! Woo-hoo!

Even got out and did a little badly needed weed-whacking today, but I think I'll save the mowing for tomorrow. Supposed to have some nice weather for a few days, maybe close to 90 early next week.

This picture was supposed to be in our "Year Book", the one you have and I gave my copy to Dave,  but because I forgot to connect my head phone, they left it out.  This was in the PC

At HQ we used the BC610 Transmitter I don't know if you knew this guy 'UZYACK'

I think he was from PA

Comment by harold goldstein on Saturday

I believe it was  051.10  intermediate speed radio operator.  My Radio was an angrc 14 in the 3/4 truck.  I think it was the same radio in the PC

How are you Sig?  Where did you buy that white shirt that your wife printed on the back?

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
