I probably shouldn't even bring attention to this; but I decided to delete my blog post from a couple days ago regarding the 73 Magazines. After reading comments from Matt W1MST and Jeff KE9V, I came to realize there may be issues with permissions and stuff like that from the original authors of said articles.
One of my personal Prime Directives (channeling Star Trek) for this blog is to "Do No Harm". So since the permission issue in a gray area, and not wanting to do anyone any badness; I decided to delete the post as well as the issues that I had downloaded from my own hard drive. If this matter gets cleared up for the good, I can always go back and re-download.
On a lighter note, I saw in the British Newspaper, "The Independent" that a British company has sold out two cruise ships that will be making a "Memorial Cruise" to mark the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic this April. Supposedly, they will be following the exact same route and will hold a memorial service at 2:00 AM over the spot that Titanic went down, on the actual anniversary day.
One wry commenter stated that to make the cruise more "eventful", that the ship(s) should be forced to make the cruise without the help of radar. Oh well ........
On the other hand, on the KX3 reflector, Eric WA6HHQ has intimated that ordering of the KX3 will be taking place any moment now - remarking that it's going to be a busy week at Elecraft. I for one, have all my funds neatly set aside and am only waiting the "Go" order. Again, I know I won't be seeing anything until February or March, but at least I will have the peace of mind of being in queue.
