A tip o’ the cap and a smart salute to NS8R for making me aware of The American Legion Amateur Radio Club.


If you’re a US Armed Forces veteran and belong to the American Legion – please be sure to check it out.  It looks really, really nice.

Oh, and if you’re a veteran and a Legion member or VFW member, or not a member of any organization at all – thanks for your service!

On another note, QRP DXing can be a mixed bag.  Some days, when the band conditions are right, it can be like shooting fish in a barrel. Other days, when the bands and the sun are not very cooperative, it can be akin to having a root canal.  But either way, it’s fun. Hey, even trying for “the one that got away” is more fun than being at work!

But I really have to give credit to my brother and sister QRPers who go about it using SSB.  They have just that smidge more of patience and endurance than most of us. Sometimes, it seems like it just can’t be done – but here’s proof that it can.

Thanks, John K7HV for posting to YouTube.
