Release to Listen Award 2013

Last month, we awarded the Release to Listen Award to Vice President Joe Heitzinger (KCØOIO). Now, I realize the award was originally handed out to those who caused our repeater to time out before releasing the microphone switch.

SARA Work Party 3

A few hardy SARA volunteers sprang into action to quickly remove repeater gear from the QTH of George (KCØWOA Silent Key) and Debbie (KDØAPL) Madline. The prop-erty was sold and, with short notice, SARA equipment had to be removed.

OXB Counterpoise – Dayton or Bust!

I did a first this year; I attended the big, intergalactic hamfest in Dayton, OH.
I sorta let Keith (AGØH) and Mike (WAØKKE) twist my arm and talk me into going along with them. We shared travel and accommodation expenses. It’s a long, colorful story with several chapters about how we drove Mike’s motor home there and back. (Can you imagine ~6 miles per gallon? Or, was it 6 gallons per mile?!) I think we aver-aged ~1 laugh per mile (LPM). I’ll save the unclassified summary for another time.
