Great job there Piccolo!  I've worked two stations there and he's one of them.  I remember several times when I could barely hear him and always wanted to work him so bad.  Finally got through during the All Asia contest last year.  I think his QRZ page pictures just makes us want to work him even more!

The contest is not as good here for me as the previous year.  Lots of Asiatic Russia but no Pacific Rim stations so far for me.

I would totally rock an outfit like that if I had it.

Somehow my beanie with the propeller seems inadequate.

There's a little history behind that pic.

Someone told me I ought to join the HF/Backpack group and I looked into it and din't like what I saw. A couple of other hams (arfcom and Non arfcom) told me I wouldn't fit in because it was run strictly by some hippie chick with an agenda.

I looked carefully and knew I wouldn't fit in because my jacket didn't come from North Face or REI etc etc.

Meanwhile a Massachusetts Policeman that I knew from the Yahoo PRC 320 group turned me on to the Moose and Squirrel net. THe same officer suggested I take a picture of myself sitting in a hole with a rifle in an ARMY t-shirt with a Garand and a freshly killed deer and send it in to the HF/Backpack people.

A couple of days later my nephew dropped in, we took that picture instead and sent it to Moose and Squirrel where it graces their pages.

Got him too!

Damn near had India tonight but the freaking tuners ruined it.

Seriously...tuning up or down 5 will get you there and not screw everyone trying to talk right now.

And to the annoying guy screaming his call every 3 seconds while I got Chad in Mongolia..."Nyah nah na nahhh nahhhh!"  Try being polite next time.

The 20m moxon is a HAMMER!   I swear if I get it pointed properly it gets it done.  Even at 100 W.  can't wait til Christmas.
