    Okay. That makes you the oldest one posting here so far. (I couldn't
    hear that one too well through the uterine wall I was leaning on.)

    I'm just waiting for someone to say they were there when "Four score
    and seven years ago..." was first uttered.

    First uttered by Lincoln? Or first uttered at all?

    Even alt.cellular.mts is too modern for him. Try
    alt.cellular.2.paper.megaphones.

    Nah, Icom IC-Q7A. Receives continuously 30-1300 MHz (cell blocked, of
    course) and transmits on 2M and (I assume; the catalog that's handy just
    says Dual Band FM) 70cm at a *whopping* 350 mW. Hey, that's more than your
    phone does on CDMA, more than some do on analog.

    But it's so *small*! It fits in your pocket!

    (So does my new IC-W32A WITH the hi-power battery attached. And so does the
    POS Alinco DJ-596T (with long-life battery attached) that it's
    supplanting.)

    Well, I was referring to the Lincoln speech. I'm just taking peoples'
    word for it, as my former self was tied up elsewhere at the time and
    was unable to attend.

    Only one problem with these new zero-size HTs - the average person
    can't repair them. If something went wrong with a Goonie-Box you
    could fix it.

    To go along with the bagphone motif in my ensemble, I have a Yaesu
    FT-727 dual band walkie talkie for 2M and 440. With its 1.8AH
    "extended" battery pack and full-length Diamond dual band antenna it's
    as much a conversation at a hamfest as my bagphone is at a
    restaurant...(c;

    Of course, there ARE certain advantages to an HT running 7 watts on 2M
    and 6W on 440, like being able to HIT the repeater you're listening
    to, instead of carrying around a tiny scanner with built-in signal
    generator you have to be standing under the repeater tower to
    use...(c;

    Power is ALWAYS our friend, don'tcha knows.....

    For those remote locations, I can muster up a 170W dual-band linear
    running off a deepcycle boat battery on a hand truck with a Diamond 6
    dB colinear, too....hee hee. If the packet's hooked to it, best not
    stand too close. We don't want to see anyone get burned, do we?!
    680W ERP can talk to anything it can hear....(c;

    Those guys selling computers as you pass running that much power are
    NOT friendlies....

    Even my mother doesn't remember that -- she was closing in on 10 months old
    then.

    My W2A with its original rubber ducky never had any problems hitting
    repeaters, although with an extended gain antenna I picked up at a
    hamfest (I have no idea who the manufacturer is, but it extended to
    something like 3 feet), I could use a Rhode Island repeater from the
    middle of Long Island's north shore.

    >Power is ALWAYS our friend, don'tcha knows.....


    Oh, yeah, but a kw in the trunk is pushing it a bit.

    I can tell you from experience that 600 watts at 450 MHz can talk to a
    lot it can't hear. Just listen to any repeater running that power on
    450 and see how much of what comes in is just below the noise, while
    the mouth that roared is DFQ at 3 times the distance.
