NO BURO, LotW or E-QSL! NO IRCs Please!
My adventure into Ham Radio started in the mid 50s with a one transistor crystal set I got for my 9th birthday. I roamed the neighborhoods clipping on to fences, down spouts and anything metal to see what I could pull in on that tiny earphone. I was enamored with radio waves. The magic that happens when out on the trail miles from no where and able to make contact using a simple wire in a tree and a tiny CW rig you've built yourself is what really does it for me still today! It's that same thrill I got from having my very 'First QSO' but all over again.
Hope to see you on the bands from the trail or the mountain tops! W0-SOTA team recently qualified 1500 Colorado Summits for SOTA (Summits on the Air) activations. So watch for us on QRPspots and SOTAwatch website.
