When I first
learned about amateur radio, I, like most other hams, thought it was the
coolest thing. I later found out that this radio stuff was invented a long
time ago and there are many facets of Amateur Radio. From talking on a
microphone directly to other stations, to bouncing digital signals off the
moon, there are plenty of neat things to learn. I'd like to take this time to thank
KB9NJP, who introduced me to Amateur Radio at Age 34 and doesn't even have a computer to see this with.
N9EJS perhaps the best CW showman around for being a friend and showing me that CW can be fun.
All the active hams up around Chicago who, because of their activity, gained my interest and helped me enjoy this hobby. It is because of folks in the Steel City Group, The Chicago Six Meter Club, The Argonne Group, the Wheaton Group that I began to enjoy this Hobby and continue to today.
Thanks to all the hams around Kansas City who continue to share in the enjoyment of Amateur Radio. I wish they would be more active... but thanks to those that are.
W0AIB (LARRY STAPLES) A Class guy who continues to give to the KC community.
Silent Key WB0EJJ (Berl) Who kept the KC amateur community going with his Paul Revere Net at Midnight on
Saturdays for years.
NW0L, W0ZAP, KG0US, KC0DLM, N0WLA, KC0ISY, K0OU, K0LW who's friendships I have come to rely on. ALL OF THE FRIDAY LUNCH GANG. My Wife Jeannie KC0INA who I know doesn't care about all this but got her license anyway, because I wanted her to.
Special thanks to QSL.NET for providing us a way to continue to learn and share
our knowledge with others so they can enjoy the hobby too.
