To Share This Planet
Studying for the license and taking the exam
with 8 tries and finally I am a
A amateur radio operator!
A dream that came true for an eight year old boy!
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
I have chased DX until I have finally made the contact in
some far, far away place!
SO many places.... I do not remember
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!
