Tony's piece on the briquettes could only be the work of Dave
Berry...I have been hoping for years that he would become a ham to
better point out hams' unique manorisms......really, the potatoe
salad turning into a blob and trying to mate with the corn - this
HAS to be Dave Barry.

I have just operated from Taiwan this week for 2 days and used 40 CW 
extensively.   Also on the Far East there was a fair amount of ssb 
stations in the CW band,  The JA's were on ssb down to 7030, some of the 
others I could not identify.

I guess the only thing to do is tyo be more active in fill the band with CW.

Better SSB than PACTOR!  A few enthusiast have made a lot of friends
operating PACTOR low end in the band.

A co-worker of mine asked me to help his cub scout den participate in the 
Boy Scouts Jamboree on the Air.  I visited with them on Monday and 
explained what ham radio was all about.  Then 8 scouts (ages 8-9) visited 
my station on Saturday afternoon.

What does this have to do with contesting?

Well, we tried to make a QSO on 20m.  We found a KB5 who also had a group 
of kids and we struggled through a QSO for about 15 minutes.  There was 
occasionaly QRM and kids voices are not made for legible transmission on SSB.

I happened to look at the packet screen and saw a spot for HC8A come up 
on 15m.  I asked the kids if they would like to talk to someone on the 
Galapagos Islands.  They were excited.

We got on freq, made one call, and got him.  I explained to the op, Rich 
N6KT, that I had a group of scouts who wanted to talk.  Rich was great.  
He was loud.  Clear channel.  Great contester audio that was easy to 
understand.  And even better, he could actually understand (figure out) 
what the kids were saying (contesters are the best).  He answered all 
their questions about HC8, his life, contesting, the weather, etc.  We 
talked for a little over 30 minutes.

During the whole time, the kids were entranced.  It was the first time I 
had ever seen this many 8-9 year olds be still.  All of them got a chance 
to talk and some didn't want to give up the mic.

Look for Rich at HC8A all bands this weekend.  He is a GOOD GUY!
