    I'm very proud of this YouTube video posted 8.5 years ago by my long-time friend (NT9L / John).
    John & I served with the U.S. Naval Security Group (NSA/CSS) back in 1964-72.

    He came down to the Alabama Gulf-Coast in 2011 for a visit. We traveled in my olde 1994 Winnebago Brave (30ft) along the Alabama / Florida Gulf Coast operating CW from various positions along the coast.

    One day,... he filmed me while I was having a QSO with WB0SND/M. I didn't know that he was filming until half-way thru the QSO ! (eek)

    John /NT9L posted the video on YouTube in 2011 after our R/V trip to Panama City Beach & the Naval Air Station museum in Pensacola, Fla. -

    Tonight (12/12/2019) @ 1700Z, the YouTube video achieved a viewership of over 1,000,000 views (1 Million views) - & it's STILL growing @ a rate of 400 views per-hour !!

    I'm just pleasantly surprised that I've been able to expose hundreds of thousands/millions of viewers to Morse code/CW

    ya just never know who's listening...

    Nice video! I've seen it a couple of times, and love the way you are able to be so relaxed while carrying on a CW conversation. Despite my efforts, I'm not sure I'll ever make it to that point. BTW, my background is also from the the VAQ community. Fly Navy! :D

    I too ironically enough was one of those 1 million views when I did a curiosity search of Morse code on Youtube awhile back. I too was amazed on how fast and casually you were sending while also appearing to be reading the newspaper or something. :D

    No idea you were active on the Zed or for that matter who you were. Nice to be able to know more about you now. Based on your QRZ bio it looks like you have lived a very interesting life for sure!

    Thanks for posting and from one veteran to another 73 all the best OM!

    I've watched this video a few times, and always admire your relaxation while sending! I hope one day I can be half as relaxed as you were.
