First DX

Vlad, UY7MM was the first Dx contact I had the privilege of making. Thanks for being patient, and pulling my small signal out of the noise.

First SSB Contact

Thanks to K9UDX, Bob, my New Hampshire neighbor to the north. I listened for some time to get an idea of how net operations worked. I finally got up the courage on August 30, 2009 to make my first SSB contact. I signed on the OMISS 80 meter SSB net. They are a great group of amateur operators. K9UDX was the first contact I made. That was followed by several others that evening. I eventually received my OMISS member number 6645. Bob’ QSL card is great for a number of obvious reasons. I shows the great New England scenery, and highlights his awesome dog. Thanks Bob for the contact and your OMISS number. 73 from Connecticut.
