Ham Radio has provided so many satisfying moments in my life that I could never repay the debt I owe to this avocation. The world of joy, good friends, public service, world travel and technical satisfaction can't be matched by any other pursuit.
My thanks to the many hams who have made the last 45 years so much fun! (27 Dec 1971)
To the Ham/DX Community: Thank you for the support and encouragement you have shown me. I have enjoyed meeting thousands of you on the air and hundreds of you in person. Hope I have been able to provide you with a new country/band/mode or the enjoyable pursuit of a new DX QSO.
