We made the big time!

Posted: 21 Sep 2018 06:31 PM PDT

If you should happen to be an ARRL member, and happen to have on hand the
October 2018 edition of QST, please make sure to check out page 20

SPARC's Maker's Day adventure was published! Great writing by Wayne N2LRE
and photography by Wayne and Ron N2LCZ were deemed newsworthy by the folks
up in Newington.
I saw this in the digital edition a few weeks ago, but seeing it on paper
really "pops". Yours truly has his back to you, which really shows off
my "best side".

In all sincerity, the event was a hoot and everyone had a great time. That
was it's own reward. Showing up in QST is just icing on the cake

A good feeling

I was in the shack last night, doing a bit of work on my Lenevo T430 that I
use down there. While I was there, I had the radio on, and I took a break
from what I was doing to check my e-mail and take a quick look at Facebook.

The SKCC Facebook page had a posting from a member asking if anyone from NJ
was around. He wanted a quick QSO so he could add NJ to his CW WAS tally.

The post was only about 10 minutes old, so I took the chance that he hadn't
shut down and I posted back - "What band?"

The op in question responded that he was good on just about any band; so I
suggested he pick a frequency on 40 Meters. He picked 7.110 MHz and said he
would be calling me there.

And he was! Nice and loud, too!

We had the quick exchange of signal reports and SKCC numbers and then he
was off to try to find the other two states he needed to finish up the

Having completed WAS a couple of times, it was nice to give someone else a
needed state. He kind of floored me when he told me that he has trouble
working New Jersey. I mean we're relatively "a dime a dozen" here. It's a
surprise for me to find out that New Jersey is rare for anyone!
