Not a massive distance, but a rare appearance
on the band ensures a pileup - and Fredo is not a big gun in
terms of power and antenna... so
although propagation charts say this is no brainer, it isn't;
especially when 20 stations are piling in. No mug-shots of Fredo
exist, so instead, here are a few locals...
"My operator name is Fredo.

My equipment is very rustic, here is what i'm using:
