It was probably that year, on the Monday after Dayton that Frank showed up 
at my QTH to check out the station.  Unfortunately, I was at work but my 
non-ham father was home so he showed Frank around the shack and the antenna 

I was really irritated with my dad that he didn't call me at work to come 
home to meet Frank :-(

I may have not met Frank, but my station did!
