I am very pleased to be here! CWOPS guys navigated me here. It is not very easy to try QRQ here in EU, the ops are probably lazy a bit... Many thanks for the welcome message!

Hi, Martin.

I am trying to keep away the doctor's knifes for awhile, but I know, at the least, I have one more on my lower right leg.  I have a station here in NE Texas, but my antenna situation "sucks!"  If I could improve that, I could at the least listen in.  I am slowly healing from my open heart surgery, but still not up to full strength.  Condition reports may explain why I am hearing very little these days.  I did a acquire a Vibroplex Gold Original that was Joop's, P43JB (SK), I would love to use on the air, soon.  For right now, just getting on the air is my high priority. 161, K8JoePalooka
