The following email was forwarded from Philip, KA4KOE, and it’s from Larry Williams, a prospective ham from California who visited us at Field Day around midnight, Saturday night. It’s a good reminder about one of the main purposes of Field Day…getting those “wannabe” hams involved in the operations…read on (and thanks to Philip for sharing)…
First of all, my apologies for taking so long to get back to you. I’m not a computer guy, so it takes some work for me to sit down at the library and do emails.
Made it back home ok. My grandkids really wore us out. But it was fun.
Thanks a million for taking me alongside and giving me the lay of the land with the Field Day and Ham Radio in general. I had a wonderful time and got to make my first radio contact!!!
You guys really made my day. Hopefully, I’ll be in town for the next Field Day.
God Bless!!! Larry.
