Interesting evening.

Got a phone call from the local repeater operators telling me that they
were testing the Wires X Fusion Node on a simplex frequency before
switching it over to their repeater.

I switch over there and the first person I hear is VE1AS (Terry) ex VE3KLT
who I have known for ever. and when we both lived in Ottawa lived about 3
km away.

UPDATED:* Should of given a bit more info.* Terry now lives in Pugwash NS
and according to QRZ.com thats a bit over 625 miles from Kingston.* Now
Wires X/Fusion does use a form of internet linking so its not really DX*
but I still think its neat that my first Fusion contact from home in
Kingston would be with an old friend who I knew in Ottawa who now lived in
Nova Scotia

I knew he moved but this is the first time we have talked since I moved
into Kingston Ontario a year ago

No rare DX but it was nice to talk to an old friend and neighbor

The hobby never ceases to amaze me
