Bubba and Earl, two really dumb redneck Hams from Kentucky, were in a local Wal-Mart store looking for Ham gear. Upon not finding any, they decided to look around a bit. They stumbled upon a weekly charity raffle.They bought five tickets each at a dollar a pop. The following week, when the raffle was drawn, each learned that he had won a prize. Earl won 1st place, a year's supply of gourmet spaghetti sauce and extra-long spaghetti. Bubba won 6th prize, a toilet brush.
About a week or so had passed and the men met back at Wal-Mart, again, looking for Ham Radio goodies. Bubba asked Earl how he liked his prize, to which Earl replied, "Great, I love spaghetti, but it sure is hard to solder and keep up in the air!" Earl asked Bubba, "How about you? How's the toilet brush?" "Not so good," replied Bubba.
"I reckon I'm gonna go back to paper."
Ray & Bubba (Tennessee mechanical engineers and ham radio operators) were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up and trying to figure out the best way to make a 20 meter stealth vertical out of it. A woman walked by and asked what they were doing. We're supposed to find the height of the flagpole," said Bubba, "but we don't have a ladder." The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a few bolts, and laid the flag pole down. Ten she took a tape measure from her pocket, took a measurement, announced, "Eighteen feet, six inches," and walked away. Ray shook his head and laughed. "Ain't that just like a woman!" "We ask for the height and she gives us the length!"
Bubba and Ray are currently working for the federal government designing totally invisible towers for long range communications.
They are experiencing great difficulty in seeing the tower sections and putting them together!
I was walking past the mental hospital the other day with my trusty HT by my side, and all the patients were shouting,'13....13....13'... Could it be that they were trying to get me on CB channel 13? The fence was too high to see over, but being the typical curious ham, I saw a little gap in the planks and looked through to see what was going on. Some nut case poked me in the eye with a stick. Then they all started shouting '14....14....14'...
