Thanks for visiting and the QSO, if we got into each other's logbook.
Boulder Creek is located in a Redwood and Douglas Fir forest on the coast of California. The typical big redwood tree is up to 1500 years old , 85 M high & 3.6 M diameter. The biggest nearby is 100 M high & 6.8 M dia. The town is 4,923 inhabitants and formed in the mid 19th century. Many local trees helped rebuild San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake. Only one stop sign and no traffic robots. We like it here! We being my XYL of over 25 years, Rita. Met and married in Timisoara, Romania.
I was licensed as WN6DOI in June 1970 but had no radio. A 6.7 magnitude earthquake 15 miles away in February 1971 shook me up so I later got on the air with a Johnson Adventurer. Upgraded to General and WB6DOI. Out of high school and onwards to college and N6TA. Operated during college as W6BHZ at Cal Poly, W6RFU at UC Santa Barbara. Unforgettable memories of those days operataing at the club stations between engineereing classes and labs: .... george victor george, etc. for those that knew.
I enjoy the radio when I can make time and chase DX on SSB and CW. FTDX5000MP and Palstar Commander HF2500 to the 4 element SteppIr at 20 meters.
I finished recording my paper logs to a computer and am going back thru all received QSL cards and will send a new one out to those who wanted one and never got mine. Only 30 years late but better late than never, huh? Uploaded to LOTW and got some band confirmations in the process. Now current on uploading logs.
Here are some of the neighbors that visited our QTH and paused long enough for a quick picture! But first, a couple views from 20 meters up.
Look at me! I got some new ones!
I like nuts enough that I will pose for you:
A little party for the gang:
The rest of the flock:
Don't mess with me; I'm a Western Diamodback Rattlesnake:
Don't mess wth me, either!
I eat woodpeckers"
Nobody eats me!
Don't look away or I may swipe something:
Better keep your smaller pets in at night. Or anytime!
Or, maybe good morning where you are now:
