So I just got home from work, it's later than normal, and in the mail box is the Elecraft stand kit for my K1 that Dave Bixler W0CH sent me! These things are hard to find, Elecraft hasn't had them in about a year. Thank you so much Dave!! The check is in the mail, the stand fits perfectly.

Then a little later, I moved over to 40m, and tuned in 7055, looking for a new state. George KB5AE was there for me. He is SKCC 9274S and he is in Oklahoma. A new state for 2018! George has been a ham since 1976, and really likes working CW. His current station is a TS-570 to a MFJ Loop Antenna up a mere 15 feet. George is a retired trucker and is in his 80's. Great fist George! Thanks for hearing my 4w of QRP power! I got a 569 and gave him a 599 at 00:31Z on 04/05/18.
Anyway, I thought I'd post this here so I can put it in my log when my laptop gets back, with any luck, tomorrow.
