It has always been a pleasure to operate
Howard, Don, Carl and Will. We have been
doing the ARRL 160 CW together from here
for many years. Last year we were #1 in the
World in the multi-operator category and we
have always been in the top 5 World most years.
We won the contest one other time back in the 80's.
This is usually the only contest I multi-op all year
and I always look forward operating this one
with my good friends.
The furthest DX in the contest has to
my friend, Mike VK6HD,
who I have visited in person
on the west coast of Australia at
a distance of 10,000 miles.

On receive we had:

contests than I can remember, and has won several 160 meter awards.
