    I wish I were qualified to join CFO, but just not fast enough. I was privileged to know one member, W8ZN (SK)

    My dream is to one day be called a "CW RASCAL" by K1LKP!

    But we're vegetarian, so for us its "CW is for carrots!" :D

    That is the honor reserved for an old great group of ops, Carmen. That is why some of us refrain. It brings back memories of the 'Best of the Best'.
    Your idea of a new ragchewing club is a great one though. Good luck with your idea. 73.

    The guy I mentioned in my post truly was one of the best and a great mentor to a noob like me back when I first had my ticket. I doubt I can ever equal him or any of the others that gave me a leg up. Feels good just to remember them

    It's almost a bit of catch 22, trying to maintain a club for the really great, when most of us 'mere mortals' don't match up. It says an awful lot though when those before us are held in such high esteem.

    Enough for me to just remember how they sounded and to hear the guffaws of multiple stations doing 'h e e' when I didn't really know what they were laughing about. It's upon us to try to do the very best we can to uphold the skill set they passed on, even if we aren't as fast. Three cheers for those who do measure up and for those like Carmen who try to keep it alive.

    Don't know if you want to equate (most) hams with turkeys. Growing up my Dad raised turkeys to sell at Thanksgiving and Christmas as an extra source of family income. Take my word for it they are not among the brightest creatures God put on earth.
