When I used the time machine in 1996 and recruited The Old Man (1AW) and 
Clarence D. Tuska (1WD) to help operate, there was no "real time" - at 
least, we were pretty confused about it. We did manage to work every ham 
that had been licensed, in all the years that they were licensed, but it 
really wiped us out.

I still think I should've won for getting Nikola Tesla into the act. No 
one else had done that successfully. That was the most difficult part of 
the contest.
