   I've been noticing that many of you are signing your email with the
salutation "72". What is the meaning and origin of 72? Do folks
running 10 KW commercial HF amps sign 74? :-)

42,

p.s. If you want to understand the meaning of 42, I suggest you read
"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Doug Adams.
