I find that when 30m is feeling good, it is a very nice band to operate
on. The people who work it seem to be much more into ragchewing than
exchanging signal reports.. I really enjoy it. I built the 30m mfj from
parts and find it works great .. but if it is cold in the shack.. it
drifts.. I did one of the audio mods on it..and have enough audio.. I
like it.

PS.. still playing around with the Ten Tec Century 22.. can't believe
how well it works for a DC rec. Have the Tejas Curtis keyer and the WBL
VSL XS single paddle key hooked to it. I guess I have been using it alot
because I really love the key... especially the smooth wood paddle it
uses. It is about the most sensitive paddle I have come across.. seems
real accurate.
