The Magic Band comes alive!

When I was a newly upgraded ham in 1971, the only radio I had that would
operate voice mode was a Heathkit Sixer a small, 2 watt AM rig.* I had a
6-m dipole antenna taped to the inside wall.* Despite that, I recall
chatting for hours with local friends, and outstanding DX that would pop up
from time to time.

We are in the height of the Sporadic-E season, plus there is a VHF contest
going on.* Ive worked about 8 new countries so far (a few have event
confirmed bet they needed RI).* The waterfall is full of 6-m FT8 signals.*
I dont even have a 6-m antenna; Im just using my radio tuner to match my
Inverted-L (resonant on 160-m).
