The call sign of Stew Perry, a pioneer in the development of DXing on 160 and the holder of the first 160 DXCC Award, lives on again through the Stew Perry Memorial Radio Club. Stew's call, W1BB, was issued to the club on May 9,1997. A copy of an original W1BB QSL card from the 1950's was reconstructed and modified by Hal, WA1J, for use by the club. The QSL is as the original, other than the the club name on the front of the card. The W1BB call has been returned to operation in contests and casual QSOs on 160 meters since being released. During some recent contests we received many "Hi Stew" comments, but also several stations questioned the validity of the call until they were told it was reissued to the Stew Perry Memorial Radio Club. The replies were " Glad to hear Stew's call again", to "Keep the memory alive". Which is what the club has intentions of doing. The club plans to use W1BB "ONLY" on 160 meters where Stew had made his presence known and heard for many years. It was appropriate that "W1BB" was issued to a club as the call was considered by many to be too BIG for one individual to hold..... One can imagine the comment to an individual holder of the call... " I knew Stew Perry and you are no Stew Perry"....... The call is made available to all club members for casual operating or contesting on 160..... Cu on 160.... As of June 17, 1999, Jeff Briggs, K1ZM is the trustee for the club call W1BB. All future Correspondence and W1BB QSL requests shall be via K1ZM. Rev: W1BB - Thursday June 17, 1999 1522 UTC
