      I just received a GN907 after an unbelievably generous deal. What a
      beautiful looking machine. What an unbelievably complex machine to
      set up!

      I have the semi-auto mode going very well. Compared to my older
      vibroplexes it is more crisp but also less forgiving. Let me see if I
      can explain.

      Compared to my 48 Blue Racer, there is less play in all the parts.
      The Blue Racer feels very comfortable to me, like sitting in a cushy
      chair watching TV. The GHD has no play. Everything feels precise. It
      is almost like sitting in an ergonomically designed office chair and
      getting down to business.

      When locked in semi mode it is a natural transition from the
      Vibroplex. It took me only a few minutes of practice to get the
      timing down mostly correct. In auto mode - it is like nothing you
      have used before. I've heard some say it feels like paddles. Not for
      me. I'm used to Iambic paddles and this is a different beast
      altogether. It will take some getting used to and a lot of playing
      with the adjustments.

      The instructions that came with the bug are OK. Plenty of detail but
      obviously translated from another language. It is going to take a lot
      of experimenting to get things dialed in properly.

      Thank you to Jim, N3ZJ for such a wonderful Christmas present.

      A couple of pictures will be in the photos section shortly.

        Kevin is being rewarded for his own generosity.

        I hadn't said anything in public before only because I didn't want
        anyone thinking, "Why didn't Keving do that for me," but when I was new
        to the SKCC and Yahoo group, and he didn't know me from Adam, but I
        expressed an interest in learning to use a bug, and Kevin made me a
        ridiculously generous offer to acquire on his bugs. He even gave me a
        choice - I could have a classic 1940-something model, or a late model
        Vibroplex Standard. I was more interested in using than collecting, so
        selected the like-new late model bug for which parts are available.

        I am thrilled with the bug and dumbfounded at Kevin's generosity toward
        me, and I am thrilled that someone showed this generosity toward Kevin!
