Hello !
   Thank You for all the pleasant contacts from 2013 until today , hope to meet more nice people in the future ... wink

My thoughts for 2018 :

"" We are in great haste to construct a magnetic telegraph from Maine to Texas; but Maine and Texas, it may be, have nothing important to communicate.""
Henry David Thoreau ,in the year 1849 (!), in his book 'Walden; or, Life in the Woods' ; "rediscovered" by "my personal" hero Clifford Stoll , K7TA).
I could say now a lot of words after more then 40 years 'on the bands' about bragging,narcissim,egomania,bumptiosness and
bad operating techniques, 'crocodiles' and much more...
Who am I , to give You an advice ?
But please take care of Your people in Your neighborhood, in Your family ,in Your amateur radio neighborhood , which is worldwide... (It was once called  '
Loving Awareness' in the early times and still today  at  Radio Caroline),
thanks for reading !

Here are some more silly and "important" informations and details about my radio career:
