We've had these threads before. While CW and digital contacts are nice, the few SSB ragchews I have had are the best.

Mostly Carlo and Janet. I'm looking forward to Janet getting her HF antenna going. Winter is coming, and 40/60/75 play well.

At one point or another:

The bartender
Pope Carlo
Fred
Janet

I might have missed one or two...

We ought to jump back on 40 or 75 some evening. One time we did a net and had close to 20 of us going back and forth.

I've also worked Jerry (X Rated), Paul ('LAF), Doug ('GA) and Ryan ('RJ) on the air. Met Ryan and wife in person at Dayton and Suddenseer has been a frequent flier at 'DSG's Friday evening birthday bash over the years.

ETA: Spent an enjoyable afternoon in the Buffalo Appleby's with Kelli and her daughter. Went to Lockport to pick up an FT726R and they met us on the way home.

Met Suddenseer when he came though.. Never worked anyone on air but have heard KJ3N work a few stations in the past. Also heard N2RJ long ago but didn't get to work him.

OH I did work W7XF on 40m one night when he was driving da truck

In no particular order:




W7XF
N2KKM/N2CHX (under her old call sign)


NX6D/WU9G (haven't worked Janet as W7XP yet)
[/td]
KF0RT


KG4CGC
KJ3N


W0TKX
KA9MOT


W5IEI
WA6MHZ


K7SGJ
W3MIV (SK)


N3LAF




Some of these folks are no longer active on the Island but are still members so I included their calls anyhow.

r
N4BBQ Just got done working you. Looks like you may hv a bit of an issue. Seeing 2 decodes of your sig. Not sure if thats your overdiving or I'm too hot on my rcv though.
Also, I think we've only worked JT9. I don't see you in my log under jt65...

Also at this time im still stuck on 40m. My dipole I cant get it trimmed to match 20m. Might hv to wait a while.
