Additional Note:

I want to personally thank those who took part and for the help and encouragement I have received from the group.
Since I became licensed late last year, I have found amateur radio to be rewarding and a great learning experience.
After 40 years as a broadcaster, and spending countless hours behind the mike and in front of the camera, amateure
radio is a great challenge and the discipline and professionalism I have found quite rewarding.
Thanks to all, 73,

– Dan Thomas
