I did not get to participate much. I did call CQ and the site name several times with no response back.But as soon as I hooked the old tentec up and started to mess with it. I heard a couple members here calling CQ. Then hook the Kenwood back up and the band would be dead. HI HI Always my luck. But it was good to hear some members out there on the air. Hope to talk to all of u soon.

Gary,

Ed/Crash Ash and I are both newbies. I'm lucky enough to have a Elmer named "Moleculo" near by that shortened my learning curve by a ton. poor old Ed has been fighting to get used to a new FT-897 and it's 20 layer deep menu system, has had nothing but problems with his HF antenna until just the other day and today this was his first weekend on HF. Yesterday, one of his first contacts was a less than pleasant Todd on .425... I imagined him wondering what he'd got himself into.

We spoke on the phone after the contest had ended and you restored his faith. He mentioned how you were flagging down contacts for him and helped him put a few on the board. How you'd make a contact, them send them his way. Good on ya. I think he's feeling a lot better about his investment tonight.


73's and thanks,

Mark/OMW

Mark, you were right. Gary was a big help to me today and a real good ham. He was my best contact today. It was like he was right next door to me on the radio. Helped me alot. I feel real good about my cheap 10 meter dipole right now. Gary came in strong and so did others today.

Again thanks to everyone that I made contact with today, it was fun. Now the next contest, Mark and I have a plan to elevate our stations to the top of the local mountains and let our cheap dipoles give you a run for your money

Best to all of you, 73's

Ed Ash

Gentlemen: Believe me when I say the pleasure was mine!
I was always glad to "help" out...My Elmer WA9TPZ was brutal...He road me like a borrowed mule...However he taught me more than I'll ever know (SK now 2 yrs this month)...I still miss him on the air...
Yet here I am...I have taught 3/ Novice classes (many yrs ago)...(Thanks to ARRL for killing that!) gave countless exams and helped with my share of antennas...
I never regret a minute of any...
I guess that's why I enjoy Field Day so much...
It's a true pleasure to watch(listen) a new(young) op "Blossom" during an event such as FD...
I heard it yesterday during the event and was damn proud to be a part of that...
Well enuf said!
Work calls...
All the Best
Gary
