    .......I get mistaken for K3LR all the time. It must be my mighty 30 watt signal from a wire up in the trees. I only have one operating position, but guests are always welcome. :D 73 K3LRH

    p.s. congrats Tim!

    I disagree with this. I have been in numerous cw contests with this station. This station will consistently send and reply at 30+ words a minute, no matter what speed the contacting station sends. I have heard many a 'qrs' request go either unnoticed or ignored by the operators of this station. A GOOD ham will reply at the same or at least close to their contacting station.

    Congratulations, Tim. I've worked operators from your station on at least a couple of occasions.

    So many issues...

    - The award is for Tim, and not his station. Dozens of different people operate from that station and it's rarely obvious who the operator is at any given moment. You are, in effect, impugning Tim for not forcing the people using his station to lose points during the contest, as...
    - Very few people slow down in contests...because it's a contest. Most stations running a frequency won't spend a lot of time trying pull an S1 station out of a calling pileup - for exactly the same reason.

    Perhaps, given the above, this isn't the place to complain about this.

    Congratulations well deserved, and it's true it is not just the contest station, this it is for all his accomplishments.
    Besides being a great asset for ham radio and a top operator, Tim has had a very accomplished professional career. In fact his professional career has also brought others into our hobby.
