    HORSESHOE LAKE, WISCONSIN - Local ham radio operator and self-avowed bachelor Giani Balboa says his latest creation will revolutionize the lonely hearts of the hobby.

    The prize winning tailor (his garment making took 1st place at the 2004 Cumberland County Fair) has developed a new digital software format designed for the amorous ham.

    "I call it FT-88s," says Balboa. "It will whisper your call sign to hams of the opposite gender and you'll be making contacts in no time!"

    Designed to run on a home computer, the software comes in both "male" and "female" versions.

    Transmitting on a 15 second cycle, the male FT-88s client includes several preset messages including:


    o HOW YOU DOIN'?
    o DO YOU COME HERE OFTEN?
    o DO I KNOW YOU FROM SOMEWHERE?
    o WHAT'S YOUR (CALL)SIGN?

    Female version, preformatted messages include:


    o NO COPY; I HAVE OTHER PLANS
    o SORRY, I HAVE TO WORK DX LATE
    o I'VE SEEN BIGGER SIGNALS

    Balboa says the software will exchange the "kissing emoji" with the correct keystrokes.

    He adds that third-party software will allow you to swipe left for logging to HRD log and swipe right for logging to AC Log.

    Talking to reporters while exercising at his home gym/hamshack, he says QSOs will be digitally signed automatically and transferred to both NRRL's Logbook of the Globe and www.hothamradiooperators.com.

    Because, obviously, there is an enormous ratio of women vs men on HAM radio.
