I thought I'd share with the gang, a little history/background of my part
in the Five Star Operators Club. I've included photos of me and Bill Eitel
presenting the award, W2KFA Gene Lombardi and I (yeah long hair, dark
glasses and red tie), and the letter I received when I became a member.
I mentioned the K4KN keyboard in another discussion with photo, that
I used to get to 80 wpm. At the time, I had plenty of free time, I was trying
to earn a living as a rock musician, so I was working half the time. But I
spent many evenings on 7030 with Gene K4KHT and Gene W2KFA working
to get to 80 wpm. W2KFA made a tape and sent it to Bill Eitel for proof.
