Your idea of weight lifting is standing up.
You have an external speaker in your bathroom connected to your rig.
You have your Old Codger Number tattooed on your forehead so you don't forget it.
When checking in please give your call sign, name and old codger number (if you remember it) slowly and clearly to allow this old codger time to jot it down correctly
If you don't remember your old codger number don't worry, I'll remind you what it is so you can forget it again next week
If you are new to this net and do not have an old codgers number, we will assign one to you that will be yours for life. You can even get your OCN membership certificate (suitable for framing) to hang on your wall
Join us in saying hello to everyone and amaze us with your command of useless information
