Stuart makes his first contact


Posted: July 16th, 2009 under Hamradio, Morse.

f5ntj KB6NU posted a story from this years field day on his blog. I read the story some time last week, and I found it quite touching. The story is about Stuart making his first radio contact. Stuart is a young boy 13 years of age who get’s his first shot at a contact on a field day. This boy learned the morsecode on his own and have been listening to ham radio operators on his handheld scanner for several years. His mother brought him along to the field day so he finally could meet some hams and see them operate radio. It turns out his morsecode is so good he manages several CW  contacts on his own with very little guidance.

Go here to read the story for yourself.
