Re: So, where's the recession?

For most of the working class, the recession of 2008 has never ended. The economy is bad still for the "common folk". Only the higher classes are doing well. However, since the working stiffs and especially the poor are nothing more than expendable wallets, it really doesn't matter anyways.

Re: Brawl Mart

I hate Wal*mart. I don't go in there unless wifey has won a gift card. I've always marveled at 38 checkouts, and only 3 are open, no matter what season it is.

I think it needs a second cowbell, on different channels to "explore the space" LOL!

Re: Favorite Ad One-Liners

I've fallen, and I can't get up! I finally, after years of searching, found a bad copy of the stupid song someone made from this in the late 80's. Would love to find a batter copy.

Re: Realistic DX 160

The radio we all lusted over like a hot 21 year old, and never had enough money to afford either. I have a speaker for one, incase I ever find one for sale at a hamfest below the original retail price. I see these on Ebay quite often. Nearly all of them will need new capacitors if they haven't been...

The DX-160 must have improved on the 150 enough to get the model number bump.
The DX 160 added LW and BC bands, plus had some tweaks to improve things. For it's price range was a very nice communications receiver.

I truly miss live, local radio directed at their City of License, instead of this "Where ever you go, we're there, sucking as usual" garbage.

Re: WKLT-fm, Kalkaska and WKLZ-fm, Petoskey

I have always viewed the market environment up north to be just plain nuts. But this is how corporate anything works, by gobbling up all the locals to make one giant, tasteless pancake. Sad to see all of these formerly decent stations tossed around again. It never seems to stop up there. The whole "...

Re: Trials of restoring Heathkit DX-35

I remember actually seeing that RCA at WKNX working back in the Day. It was trashed to make room for the MW10 in around 1979-80.

Edit: Honestly, I thought the RCA sounded better than the Harris.
