QSL image for AB8JH

Greetings! The above picture is of myself (the fellow with the 'thumbs up') and Greg, KC8HRW, now SK. I considered Greg a good friend and elmer in the hobby of amateur radio. He will be greatly missed.

I had toyed with the idea of amateur radio for several years, but had kept putting it off due to the cash constraints that high school kids often have. Finally, after messing around with FRS radios that I had gotten for Christmas in 1999, I resolved to get my Technician class license. I received the callsign KC8NRX in January 2000.

I listened for some time after waiting on my callsign and equipment to arrive. I purchased a used Kenwood Th-22AT and got on the air on the local repeater using the unfiltered wall transformer. Greg KC8HRW was a friendly voice I had heard many times on the machine. Sure enough, he answered my ID and welcomed me when he found out I was a new ham.

Lucky for me Greg was only a mile up the road- with his high elevation and 13 element beam he was able to work my HT on only 50mW. Since that time I have learned much from him and consider him a representative of the best aspect of amateur radio- the helping spirit.
