I started to post the QSL card that Vic W8DFL from Parma. En’s uncle Bill gave us the stack of QSL cards that Vic collected over the years.

I just got a response from NØUN. Wayne grew up across the street from Vic. He’s now in Parker, CO — a suburb to the southeast of Denver. For some reason I’m guessing he did a search for Vic’s old call. Both En and her mom got excited at hearing from someone in a past life.

Vic was Wayne’s Elmer.  :-)

Amateur radio seems to bring people together. It’s one of the reasons it exists. It’s one of the reasons that so much radio spectrum is devoted to it. He seems to be active on 20m lately. When I get my big antenna hooked up to the rig I think I’ll be looking for him on the air.

From looking at the arial view…

DAMN that’s a big yagi!
