I reply to QSL cards immediately, usually via same way they came. smiley I also upload to LoTW before the end of each day except for the Missouri QSO Party. Then I upload when I submit my final log and merge it into my main log.

As a teenager, I had an interest in electronics but never pursued it. Later, as my son was turning 14 my XYL gave us both a Radio Shack 200 Electronics Experiments kit. That led to me buying and repairing old broadcast radios, and then finally to amateur radio when my neighbor gave me his non-working Lafayette Comstat 25A CB radio (which gave my my first encouter with an exploding capacitor), CONAR test equipment from the old NRI, and an 80 meter transmitter chassis that he never assembled but that I finished from a schematic. A few more encouragements by others to get my license and word of a class being given by the Monsanto Amateur Radio Association finally got me into the hobby. Thank you to all the Elmers along the way.
