    Very good ambassador. Our hobby is unrecognized, generally by most Americans- BUT - Gordon West's efforts have made Ham Radio more accessible and understandable and have led thousands to acquire licenses. That's the good news. The BAD news is our efforts through ARRL LOBBYING to thwart HOA restrictions did not have more muscle. Perhaps part of that was the video that demonstrated why a tower was beneficial? Those idiots should have focused on why an invisible wire is beneficial. DUH. No more money to ARRL from me.

    I took his code class back in 2000 and they were on cassette tapes. I found him to be a good instructor and that kept my interest in learning Morse Code.
    I still send CW today thanks to Gordo!

    Gordo is probably responsible for getting more hams their licenses than any other person on the planet.
