88 is something you're rather receive from Viki, Ginny, or better yet, 
your wife - "Love and Kisses". :)

Hey, I wonder if we could roast coffee with RF? =8-)

Going to miss our 17th anniversary here - she it pure Marine Corps
wife, and an Air Force brat to boot.

oh yeah - we have something called a TRC-170, troposcatter (you can
bounce it off the troposphere and get a link) microwave that will cook
you if you get in the danger zone, it would roast up some beans FAST -
The shot is from here to - well, somewhere that I won't/can't probably
shouldn't disclose, but we walk into the shot on the way to chow.....I
always wonder if we are getting zapped by stray rays.  We are using it
line of sight so the elevation is pretty low...wicked bandwidth
Luckily I am done having kids?

You are now!
We had a MRC-98,  a 50 kW tropospheric scatter rig at Clark in the PI's.
Five semi trailers to haul the power, multiplex and microwave radio eq. What
an albatross.
You and the [not so] distant station aimed the antennas almost directly at
each other, at a "common volume" in the troposphere on the horizon. Of the
enormous beam power from the transmitter, a few microwatts would be received
at the distant receiving dish.
Add to that quad diversity, and the things were power hogs. Some genius
determined that you couldn't radiate that horrendous intense power and not
invite interception by some local unfriendlies with fairly simple receivers
and scanning demultiplex equipment.
We got satellites and very low powered tactical comm equipment in the last
50 years. You aim it up, so it's intrinsically secure communications.
Cheers es 73 -RayO, aka Opa!
Your tax dollars at work...
