QSL direct, via buro, LOTW or eqsl. I love paper cards!

Icom IC-746Pro Transceiver for 6 and 2 meters. 

 

 

The white Toyota decked out in winter colors (!), has for its license plate my current (and former) call sign. You can see two of my previous call signs on these two other cars I've owned.  The Olympic license plate was a special issue for the 1992 Olympic games. I have a 1984 Olympic plate with my novice call on it around here somewhere. 

      

In May 1989, I decided I wanted to operate the Nevada QSO Party portable from near the top of Humboldt Peak in Pershing County, Nevada. Here are the results!

I managed to roll the truck backing up over a large rock at about elevation 6000 ft. I didn't see the rock. The Nissan rolled up on the rock and tipped itself over. THAT wasn't fun.  

I managed to raise someone on 146.52 simplex who was traveling on Interstate 80. The ham called a tow truck for me. Much later, and for some reason, the Pershing County Sheriff showed up with the truck driver and his truck.  The sheriff asked many questions about the accident and why I was up there. His  question, which he asked multiple times was, "You drove all the way up here to do WHAT?" He had a real hard time believing that I was there to operate a ham radio contest. After seeing all the equipment, which was mostly spilled all over the road, he was convinced I was legitimate, if not just a wee bit nuts. 

It didn't occur to me, until much later, the sheriff was probably concerned about non-legal things. It's pretty remote out there, ideal for cooking something illicit, I suppose.  

That 1985 Nissan 4x4 gave it's all for ham radio. laugh Needless to say, I don't do mountain topping anymore.

Made for a great story and a unique QSL card. 

My old boring California ham plate. The new Washington plates are much more colorful.
