Good job, Cal! I really enjoyed listening to the NS audio. I've never listened to an NS on the air.
Your grampa K9MMS must be so proud of you. You will go far at whatever you do in life, no doubt in my mind.
Most of us in my generation (I'm 60) honed our skills with 100 watts and wires and verticals just like yours. Takes a lot more finesse than the big firepower of 1.5 kW and a beam.
I began my ham career at the very bottom of a sunspot cycle, like you. You won't believe your ears when 10 opens up again someday.
I see you have an N3ZN paddle; so do I!
The video was very cool. The TV producer did a good job, didn't he/she?
I might just try this week's NS. If I do, it will be because of you. Imagine that, inspired by a 14-year-old. Listen hard for my puny signal, would you?
Contesting needs another few thousand "KID"s like you. (When I listened to the audio I didn't know why you gave the name "KID." Then I read your web site. : >}
All the best,
Jim Cain, K1TN
