Nice meeting you Dave. Thanks for joining the forum. I had a local QSO this morning on 80 meters. Looking for some DX on 40 meters right now. Then it's off to work for me. Take care. -Joe

I've been practicing my 'Quick Brown Foxes'. In an effort to look for other simple practice bits I looked it up: a pangram is a sentence or phrase that contains all the characters of a given language. There's plenty of English pangrams out there if you Google it. Here are a few of my favorites:

-How quickly daft jumping zebras vex.
-Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs.
-The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
-Amazingly few discotheques provide jukeboxes.
-Grumpy Wizards make toxic brew for the Evil Queen and Jack.
-Five or six big jet planes zoomed quickly by the new tower.
-I quickly explained that many big jobs involve few hazards.
-The wizard quickly jinxed the gnomes before they vaporized.
