Thanks to all on the net tonight, I actually more stumbled across it than had planned on joining, but appreciate the well wishes etc. Tonight was my first time contacting rather than just listening, after getting my license ~2 weeks ago and I'm really happy about it!


I'm negotiating with the Mrs. on getting a night out to come to a meeting/Elmer night, and hope to meet more of y'all in person soon.

There are lots of new hams on the air!  Great to hear them especially the uh less than 20 year old crowd.  All of the QSOs heard and participated in have been welcome music to my ears.  Hearing the new folks pride in their achievement and excitement does this old guy's heart tons of good.  The experienced hams have been super nice and welcoming.  Hope this continues!
