I was cruising the Web this morning while filling my ears with CW on 40 meters. It’s really great having my HF rig back from the shop. By the way, if you are in need of an equipment repair, I might suggest you contact Burghardt in South Dakota.
It’s been over 3 months since I have had my TS450S making really good noises (CW notes) in my shack. As it turned out, there was a leaky cap spewing out corrosive materials on to one of the PC boards. At this point I am just glad that I caught up to the problem before the radio ended up in the closet acting as a dust magnet.
After throwing down a few quick Tweets (I have learned those are what posts to Twitter are called) about our latest club project, I somehow stumbled across KB6NU’s blog.
Dan’s story about Stuart and his mom got my attention. I thought of it as an inspirational article for Hams that take part in Field Day and Elmering the younger generation. Apparently Stuart was quite an interesting little fellow. Since my writing skills will never be in the same league as Dan’s, it would be much better to take a few minutes to read Dan’s post directly. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
Has anyone had a similar Field Day Story to share with the readers?
Are there any quick comments out there about Dan’s story?
