QST View - AView For Windows 7 K3SK on 11/2/12
I just need the original version of A-View for use with my WinXP computer. I had a cra$h of the hard drive and lost the copy I've had on it since 2005. I can't find the original version on any of the CD's i've found, and I want to take a peek at the 1940-49 CD which I've recently purchased from another ham.

Favorite Rigs For QRP Contesting? KX9X on 27/7/11
The best rig which I've used has been a K2. However, since I haven't felt that my ham radio budge can afford one of these, I've been using a venerable but very useful Drake TR-5. It has served me will since 1984 when I won it at the Cincinnati Hamfest. My then 9 year old son pulled the ticket out of the pile! :)
