   An HW-5400, nice!  I built this model from a kit when I was a 
teenager, on my grandmother's kitchen table.

   Before I became old and sentimental, I sold it to a friend.  I got 
back in touch with him not long ago; he still has it.  I plan to buy it 
back from him at some point; he's amenable to that.

   These really are very nice transceivers.

   Mine doesn't have the keypad option in the upper left.
