    To the anonymous person that gifted my ham daughter a TH-D72A, thank you from the bottom of my heart! My daughter gets lots of QSL cards and since she is known as the Taco Kid in the AMSAT community, she occasionally gets some taco trinkets. We would have never expected to receive the gold standard of a radio for a FM satellite operator in the mail. As a dad, I am so proud of my daughter but I am also so proud of the amateur radio community that supports her, helps her and coaches her. We will find a way to pay this act of generosity forward. Thank you from both me and my daughter. 73!

    You're a lucky Dad Jeff.
    Plus, it's wonderful that someone out there took the time to make her day/month/year by doing that.

    Saw the Reddit earlier, thanks for bringing it over here. FB to the anonymous benefactor.

    W4AQT is now learning how to program her new radio. This is such an awesome gift for her. This past weekend, she got to talk to an astronaut on the ISS and now she gets this awesome gift. She is blessed.

    I saw this yesterday on Twitter. This shows the best side of ham radio and the great people in our hobby.
