Isn't that what some Plossls are made or called today-ASymmetrical?

Cool...ham radio.

I was really into ham radio when I was little, but my dad never took me to take the licensing tests. The radio bug still bites from time to time. I have a Morse Code trainer on my computer and made it through 4 or 5 characters. My club's president (an undergrad) and an old knowledgeable alum who hangs around both have Extra Class licenses (apparently you don't need to know code at all anymore?), and their ham shack is in the observatory office.

Sorry to go off topic.
