Today was the day my wife expected her new callsign KU7SA to be granted, and it was. It is a callsign we will use in certain contests like WPX as we operate under the U S Patriots Contest Club. While she is not real active on the air she was anticipating making her first contact using the new callsign with our daughter who is also a licensed amateur radio operator--I was going to be the second contact. As fate would have it this morning she fell on the ice and broke her hip. As I type she is enroute to the best hospital in Central Oregon where tomorrow morning a very good orthopedic surgeon will repair the damage. I would thank those so inclined to pray to do so for her recovery. While she is younger than I am she is no spring chicken and broken hips are the bane of senior citizens.
