Humor at N5AU
Several years ago when Gordon Fogg, N5AU, had his station
running big time...when K5FUV was still in Texas...a humorous
event occurred at the end of a DX-SSB test.
9Q5 station, on 20 SSB, working stations by call district, with
only 5 minutes to go before end of contest:
9Q5 stn: Listening for stations with 2 in call (big pileup)
N5AU 20 mtr op: This is N 2+3 AU N 2+3 AU
note: Lots of 'hissing' from the pile-up too!
9Q5 stn: Who is the AU station?
N5AU: This is N2+3AU and that equals N5AU
9Q5 stn: Big laugh, N5AU you're 5x9 zone 35
N5AU: Thanks, you're 5x9 04 de N5AU!!
Much laughter by all the guys in the shack at N5AU too!! He's
in the LOG. Strategy a bit questionable, but it WORKED!!!
