    Glad to hear Ken is finally on the way home.
    Have a safe journey, Ken. It was a pleasure to work you on the 10th on 15m.

    That's impossible. Everybody knows the bands are dead and there's no DX to be worked. ;)

    First I had heard he was actually back. Why should this thread be closed already? Do you have a source or a link with this information?

    Never mind, but thanks anyway ...
