A visit to W1

I just got back from a two-week Chief Warrant Officer professional development course at the Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT. While there, I had the opportunity to spend an evening with some very good friends.

Dave, NN1N, arranged the get together. Fortunately Randy, K5ZD/1 offered up his QTH as a meeting point. It was a great opportunity to see some old friends, plus to see the NN1N and K5ZD QTHs for the first time. Too bad there was too much snow to walk around to see the towers.

Lots of snow at the K5ZD/1 QTH in MA!

Thanks to NN1N for setting up the dinner, and to K5ZD for hosting us. Also thanks to K1EA, KM3T, K1AR, and K1DG for showing up! I have not seen most of these guys since WRTC 2006 in Brazil, and it was an enjoyable break from two weeks of class.
