So Long FT-950

It still is hard to believe I was actually able to let go of my beloved FT-950. Since I have had the FTdx-3000 I noticed I had hardly turn it on so it was time for it to make someone else as happy
as it has done me for the last 4 years.
I like to experience other radios and decided to trade a chap in New Jersey for his TS-590S.  It has been a very long time since I owned a modern Kenwood transceiver due to the bad taste a couple
of TS-2000’s left me with over their receivers being so poor.
The trade was fair based on age and current resell values. Awaiting the 590S’s arrival. Should arrive on Monday 2/26/17. Will report back here with my opinion.

 

Starting off the year with an injury.

For the sake of not embarrassing myself I will say that last weekend I injured my left wrist in a fall. Sue, the XYL as been running the QSL business almost entirely alone.
Meanwhile the doctors are not displaying any signs of telling me what I have injured or broke to cause this much discomfort and extreme pain in my hand and wrist. Another week wearing a velcro wrist brace and then another XRAY and Dr visit to go. If there is any good to mention it is than my CW hand is alive and well still !
