    As the City Manager of Streator, Illinois, Clyde Tombaugh's birthplace and boyhood hometown, I'm definitely going to participate in the special event. Streator honors Tombaugh with a large Walldogs painted sign downtown and a memorial plaque and artwork at a city golf course. I appreciate the efforts of the Northern Arizona DX Association to promote Tombaugh and his discovery of Pluto.

    Wow, my 10 y/o grand daughter wants to be an astronomer, and walks around reciting facts about the cosmos. AND, a few weekends ago, she heard a CW QSO I was having and wanted the 411. I showed her the chart of letters and numbers and told her it was another language. She digested that for a weekend, and now she will occasionally speak to me in CW. This will be right up her ally.....oh, that's also her name, Ally. LOL

    I read a book about Tombaugh and his search for Pluto. The way he would compare photos inspired me to use it comparing data base entries! Looking forward to this.

    One of the things I enjoy the most in amateur radio is working special event stations. I am really looking forward to this!

    FT8 is one of the things that has ruined ham radio for me. Just use your darn smartphone if you think that is ham comms. The old fashioned way is CW or voice.

    That's an interesting observation. You're the first person I've heard mention that.
