    Well, sort of. I mean, I HAVE worked Tom on several occasions but this one was pretty cool! My wife is working from home (she is a radiologist and due to COVID, has a setup in our office, where my shack is). I was having to be quiet and couldn't talk on the radio, so decided to play around with Morse Runner, the contest simulating software, using headphones.

    My 13th contact was Tom, KC0W! I thought that was funny. What wasn't funny is it was my 13 contact but his 23! He was already ahead of me! Darn!!

    I'm bored today apparently . . . LOL!!

    So aren't you afraid of radiation exposure from your wife's equipment?;)

    Fun!
    I have one of his "rare" ssb cards when he happened to make a foray into phone.

    I have several phone confirmations from 2011-2014 - not that rare back then. Where is he lately? He quit the forum a long time ago but have you heard him on the air this year, any mode?

    Tom took up permanent residence in Saipan about a year and a half ago.

    He's using the call KHØ/KCØW

    You got no idea how exciting this was for a total newbie to bust the pileup with my 10 watts and work the cow, this upset a few local big guns that i got him first. But he was 40db over here and easy to work. I have this one and one from his new QHT on FT8.

    DXSummit is blank on KHØ/KCØW. Is he still active?

    * edit * the slashed zeros don't work on that site

    KH0/KC0W has been active on data modes.
