    Some of you know about SOTA and Steve Galchutt who operates SOTA low-power with his goats. I had the pleasure of having a QSO with him 8 years ago from my Alaskan QTH. Now having moved to Texas my son took me to Ham-Con and.... there he was! He first recognized my voice and when he looked up saw my call sign and grabbed my hand... The rest of the story is on my blog at:

    Great piece. QST used to publish a lot more human interest stories like this. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks Eric,
    I am proud of the one article QST did publish of mine entitled, 'Why we are hams', and just like in that article pulling Steve's low power signal out of the hash was like finding that gold nugget!
