Some Positive Press

The June 2011 issue of QST magazine had a brief paragraph and photo published of me.

Now for the rest of the story…

Back in January of this year, I had to travel to CT for a USCG professional development school at the Coast Guard Academy. While there, I had an opportunity to meet with several good friends at the QTH of Randy, K5ZD. There is where Dave, NN1N presented me with my 160m WAS certificate. Dave had intercepted it at the ARRL HQ so he could hand deliver it to me in person.

Dave thought it might be a good idea to have a photo taken of me, in uniform, with the certificate. The opportunity presented itself at school graduation, where asst. school chief Troy Reidel “presented” me with the certificate for the photo op.

And yes, I have since been fortunate to complete WAS on eight more bands, for nine total, 160-10m. I’ve not yet received the certificates, however the application was submitted a couple months ago. It looks like 6m WAS will be an insurmountable challenge, unless we get lots of sunspots, fast, or I invest in a EME array!
