Well readers, as you may remember, I had a nice QSO with Dave KD0DK out in Iowa the other day. Apparently someone was listening and that was James K3IAN out in New Mexico. James is an ARRL Official Observer and I got the card below from him in my mailbox today.
In 30 years of being on the air, I have never gotten any kind of report from an ARRL Official Observer. I was stunned and the first thing I did was call my QRP buddy Ivin W9ILF and rubbed it in. Hehehe...Ivin would do the same for me.
I was amazed that he heard my 5w out in New Mexico on 40m last Saturday, and I even got a 449 ta boot.
Thanks again to Dave KD0DK for the QSO and thanks a million to James K3IAN for noticing and taking time to write to me. You guys all have a very Happy Easter!
