      I too am glad to see it back Bruce.
      Actually 67.25 is channel 4 picture carrier I think.. Channel 3 is 61.25 and
      Channel 2 is 55.25
      I use Channel 2 and 3 here.. Put your rig in CW mode on 55.25 and listen.
      It is still close enough in freq to
      6 meters that the beam even gives some directivity.
      However, I am just a dumb farm boy and like the title of the song "I could
      be wrong".. hi hi
