06:08 This episode is being recorded on a Sansa Clip while Richard is driving. Apologies for any pops and clicks.

07:12 Song “Funky Way” by Mark Hummel, from the album “Retro-Active”.

11:52 Rant VHF / UHF Waste land
Every VHF and UHF repeater pair within 70 miles of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area is taken. So, why can’t you find someone to talk to after 11:00pm? Years ago, that was not the case. Is the 2m band dead at night in your area? Any idea why? Let me know. Around here, 2m is busy at drive times, and a few nets in the evening, but after that, nothing. If we don’t use it, we’ll lose it. Don’t let VHF and UHF become a Waste Land

26:05 Song “Smack Talkin’ Mama” by Ray Campi, Kevin Fennell from the album “Hard Rockin’ Head Knockin'”

31:11 Conclusion
