Love my Wick Cushions!

I've been using a pair of Bose QuietComfort 15 Headphones for many years in the radio room.   These headphones are rather old, and work great for HF and CW operations.   I've ignored the ear pad that have slowly worn way over time.  I was thinking of replacing versus repairing the QC 15s.  I decided on replacing just the earpads, and found Wicked Cushions on-line.   I replaced the worn pads with no problem in 10 minutes, and the phone continue their great performance.  Thanks for a great product.

Straight Key Centry Club March 2018 Weekend Sprintathon

The SKCC WES montly weekend sprint was held this weekend.  I was able to get a "little" radio time in with 6 contacts with fellow SKCC members.   Stations on 40 meters were generally weak but very readable.   Congrats to Chas K3WW,  Doug N3QW, and Clyde K9JWI for their top scores (as of this writing) for QRO+, QRO, and QRP entries.

John, K0FCT should be recognized for his work to put the Wyoming / Nebraska State Line on the air for this WES!   I have included a photo of his operation courtesy of the SKCC website.
