To Share This Planet

©Robert Gorman


Studying for the license and taking the exam

with 8 tries  and finally I am a


A amateur radio operator!

My goodness...

A dream that came true for an eight year old boy!

and now....

Morse code travels  a long ways away to meet

new people and shake hands across the distance!

I have been sick and sleepless and have chatted with a

 late night Cuban HAM

from Havana!

I have chased DX until I have finally made the contact in

some far, far away place!

SO many places.... I do not remember

them all!

The Congo, Germany, Thailand, Peru, Montana

and Iceland, and South Africa and Australia

and Japan and Vermont

and I have even made friends with the

Ham in the next town!

For me Ham Radio has been an extension of

my love and care for all mankind!

It’s my of saying


for sharing this planet with me!

 God Bless!
