In my opinion the Yaesu FT101 transceiver is the radio to go with. It is hybrid circuitry having both solid state and vacuum tube (6146) finals making it a relative easy radio to repair and there is extensive information available to the do it yourself person. One of the most important thing about this radio is that it covers the 11 meter band (CB Radio) making it a very desirable radio and I have three of them.
Katie Lee was many things -- a folksinger, actress, author and photographer but she’s probably best known as the Goddess of Glen Canyon. Her fondest memories were those in Glen Canyon before the dam.
“I don’t dream about the canyon,” Lee said in a 2014 interview. “I cannot. I give a little prayer at night. ‘Please let me dream about my canyon.’ Nope. Because I’m thinking about it constantly. I mean there isn’t a day or even an hour that goes by that something doesn’t crash into my head and remind me of a particular spot in the canyon. It’s present constantly.”
Lee grew up in Tucson and moved to Hollywood to become an actress. But in the 1950s, when she took a rafting trip down the Colorado River, she abandoned her acting career for a life of exploring, singing about and fighting fiercely for Glen Canyon and the Colorado River.
“People say to me, ‘we feel cheated we didn’t get to see what you did,’” Lee said. “And I say, 'well then you’d better get off your ass and start protesting about places that you care about. Because the minute you find a place you really love, sure as s*** something’s going to happen to it if you don’t make effort to protect it.'”
Lee died Wednesday at her home in Jerome Az. She was 98.
Because of the drought the hydroelectric plant is predicted to stop producing power in 2023.
