The only difference between Straight Key Night and being dead is the letter "N"
and making a cw note
I might have the dang 6TV working by then......
Still having trouble with that?
Just didn't have enough time. Doing 6 10s for a while. Work is very busy.
My Dad had his call in QST twice. Once for working Halifax, Nova Scotia with the fellow running a 3/4 watt 12AX7 rig on AM...on 6 meters back in the day. The other was as a SK.
Getting your name in QST is like getting your name in your company paper.
I made myself a deal when I started working NEVER to be an award winner or employee of the month, etc. I have progressed steadily through my career without it. There were a couple of ba$t@rd bosses I had that did it anyway, but without MY help. I did take the $$$$ as turning down legal money has never been a strong suit.
Now I sit at the end of my career and can't blame anyone but myself for my success or failures no matter how infrequent they might have been. Cue Sinatra "I did it my way".,.
And the only ones making any CW notes are those who are almost dead.
Hmm..I and many others aren't close to that yet...LOL
Forfeiture of license and money would be another way to get your call in QST. I like the contest results idea better.
(Yeah I know skn is not a contest).
