As with any good product, happy customers are actual salesmen. The product sells itself. Think Tesla cars.

You really want a bumper sticker that will make people think that you can't spell correctly?

Alright already!  I just got done choking on my coffee!  I am a recovering midwesterner, having lived throughout Central and southwest Wisconsin in the mid 70's and early 80's, in my high school and college years (OK first run through college - in the end, I struck a deal with the UW system; They said never come back, and I agreed...).

 

In a small Central Wisconsin town, the Phone book had this entry:

 

fone - See phone or telephone.

 

Very funny.  In truth, the town had a very strong eastern European immigrant population.  A significant part of the area were first or second generation immigrants.  The entry makes sense in that context.  I will note that I have lived in quite a few states, and visited many more.  Hawaii and Wisconsin have the most welcoming folks I've ever met.

 

OK, back to Schiit - I have a Vali on loan sitting at the post office, along with one of the old TTVJ Millet Tube Hybrid portables to try out.  I'm very excited!

Funny you're saying that. Coming from Ukraine, I actually belong to exactly that group! :p

I have to say, current political environment not withstanding, immigration has always been a strength to this country.  Oh, Schiit - OT again...

My Wife and Step-Daughter are Ukrainian Americans Madwolfa, and we are presently in the Border State of Kentucky. I am hoping my In-Laws can assist my passion with supplies of tubes! When I return to Kharkov in the Fall I will have a return suitcase dedicated to Tubes!!!

LOL, yeah. They cost nothing there and thousands of NOS tubes are still stored in military depots. Those who have access are now making a small fortune off them...

BTW, I was born in Kharkov.

Not being really awesome at geography, but being from Kentucky I am not too certain what you mean by "Border State"

With the state of the Ukrainian economy, any good source of income is a blessing. Though my Wife has a bit of trouble wrapping her mind around what we in the West are willing to pay for what is considered a cheap, useless commodity back home 😟.

A Border State dates from the War Between the States, on the border between South and North ( or Midwest).
