        While bugs may be found anywhere on the bands, they may be most prevalent between .020 and .030 from the bottom of CW bands.

            Hi, Tom -

            Certainly would like to hear your Balanced Bug sing. Family time permitting, I will be exercising a number of homebrew bugs, including the very tiny Flea Bug. If the QRM is not too bad, I will hang out at the lower end of 40 and I hope to hear a lot of bugs, along with some good straight key sending.

            73 es Merry Christmas to all de Rich, WB9LPU
