I can not possibly remember everyone who helped me and encouraged me on the journey. For many I can see the faces, I can reach out and nearly grab a story or a memory but much has been forgotten. There are, however, many I remember and it gives me happiness to mention them now. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in life and not thanking people that helped me is one of the biggest.
N1SG – introduced me to CW, invited me over
W1ZIZ – Harvey, did a lot to make Ham Radio in Manchester, N.H. accessible to me through his newsletters and emails
K1ATL – a neighbor in NH that would take the time to work me as a teenager on 15m CW
N1SMB – a friend and source of co-inspiration. We’ve been creating callsign confusion ever since
N1HKO – hosted ARRL Sweepstakes at his house. A seminal moment, I was hooked
KB1SO – I don’t remember how I got hooked up with Ray, KB1SO and his neighbor Bruce,
W1GQ for three glorious years of M/M action.
K1RX – Mark invited me to his M/M station and it was a wonderful experiece
N0TG -introduced me to DXpeditions and got me on a real one, Sable Island
K3WWP – a constant source of inspiration, John maintains a low power
