Without looking - who can answer these?
1. Who won the SS CW contest in 1966?
2. Who did the writeup?
No - they weren't the same person.
Recently - I stumbled on a 8X10 picture from WAY back (like 1950ish) of
Jim Maxwell, W6CF (ex W6CUF). I am not sure how I got it - but N5ET might
know. It had been sitting in my bookshelf for who knows how long.
You can view this historic photo here:
Jim is the nice looking young man at the top of the photo.
Then - as I tried to find out more about this picture - I found a W6CUF QSL
card from 1949 on E-bay!! Had to have it. You can view it in that same
directory (just back out the .jpg filename).
I also had a contribution from N6AA of a 1966 QSL card from the SS CW -
which made me look at the results (which are also in that directory).
If anyone has other W6CF/W6CUF trinkets - maybe we can post them in the
And no - I am not going to post any of his limericks. Those had to be
heard in person to fully appreciate (with proper alcoholic consumption).
PS: Answers to the questions: W6CUF of course. W1YYM did the results - who
is better known as W1YL/4 these days.
