[a litle more snipping]

I'm going to reveal a little secret.  Maybe many of you feel the same way
I do.

I LOVE sitting in front of the radio.  I LOVE turning the knobs and
hearing strange sounds come out.  I LOVE making QSO's in a contest.

I've won a very few contests and that is grand.  But what I enjoy most is
doing them.  Being a "little pistol", I don't always envision winning.  I
DO envision just getting on the air and having fun.  I always feel a
slight letdown when the contest is over, more because I can't keep doing
it than because of my score.

Ol' Larson must've gotten himself a vanity call.  He used to be WIOU.
Welcome back.   :-)
