|Goofing around last winter with an old HAM mic - not connected|

Here is the link to this mornings Sunday Cruiseheimers Net I checked in this morning so listen closely.
Oh and here's something interesting. Mid-day we were visiting with a dock neighbor about LED nav lights. I did my usual..."So, do you have a SSB?" He did. We told him that we are struggling to get the hang of it and really aren't hearing but maybe 1/2 with a lot of static. "Well, yeah. That is just the nature of it. Once my buddy and I had to use our Bahamas SIM card cell phones to call each other and stay on the phone for a long time as we dialed our SSB's together, trying to find a channel we could talk on and hear each other!" We are learning more and more that this is just how it is. While that makes us feel better that it's just not us or our SSB, it doesn't really give us a warm and fuzzy about the technology and reliability of it over all.
