    Thanks for such a warm welcome!

    Hi guys,

    I had no idea that so many people visited the f32 site. Several of you I already know (Hi Ole and the rest of you guys).

    It will take me for ever to get use to this format but over time I will learn.

    The question has been asked, "How do you get on the internet?" referencing our living in a wilderness area. I have a Sat System. I use Starband Services and use a HUGE dish. Because we are so high on the globe, and because we have to point our dish so low to the souther horizon, it is necessary for us to use larger than normal Sat Dishes (to include TV if you want consistant service).

    The area in which I live has no "hard-wire" phone communication . . . we use *tellular* (not cellular and not conventional phones but something similar to MARS Station Communication.

    Thanks again for making me feel so welcome.

    Harold

    THAT is TOO cool!!

    You'll need to send us some quick pix of the area so I get a image of what your place looks like. Never been to Alaska probably really beautiful.

    Hi Guys!

    Wow!! Everybody's here. I didn't really know about this site until Lee posted my AAR for Germany on this site and informed me of his post.

    How do I change my profile? Everyone has their location by their name and I don't. Lee, I use to live in Texas, more specifically, Ft. Hood and I was proud to so say "I live in Texas" but now that I live in a wild, wild wilderness I am equally proud, if not more, to say I live in Alaska. So I want my AO (Area of Operation) to be listed by my name.

    Hello harold. Your place of residence sounds perfect to me.

    Hello Harold!

    Welcome from Desert Dave in Las Vegas Nv.
    Thanks for the ice and snow you sent us from Alaska these past few days! It is providing some lovely photographic opportunities for me this weekend.
