I am flattered and honored.  As a ham radio contester since my teens, I have
never been designed a "Cool Guy" before!

Recognition for the audio streaming and recording should go to Dave Pascoe,
KM3T.  It was his experience with live streaming of air traffic controllers
(he runs www.liveatc.net) that provided the inspiration and infrastructure
to make it happen.

The recordings for CQWW Phone 2007 are posted at www.k5zd.com/live/wwph07/
I hope to have the CQWW CW recordings up there within the next week or so.

Ham radio contesting is filled with smart guys who have a lot of passion for
the hobby and the sport. This same competitive drive and focus on excellence
often carries over into other parts of their lives.  Contesting is all the
better for it!

Randy, K5ZD
