Amateur Radio Exposure for Ironman

Remember the old saying, “Print anything you want but never spell my name wrong?”   In other words, it doesn’t matter what the content might be, any exposure is good exposure. In our case, we got not only good exposure but great content!  The Delaware Gazatte’s Anthony Botkin spend a lot of time with our MESH crew on the Saturday prior to Iornmen, even scaling the roof to help install a MESH node with Craig.  On Monday following, we had a nice article detailing the work amateur radio, and Delaware ARES, does to serve the community!  The printed version began with a nice picture of Bob, W8ERD af the controls of the MESH projector. The online version had the other photo- one of our hero and defender-against-ten-speeders, Craig W8CR.  Here’s a shot (click for a larger picture:
Something Interesting! While reading the article, our Wally noticed something vaguely familiar about the heroic pose assumed by Craig. Then it struck him!

Praise for the 443.55

Thanks to you and all the others for the great work keeping the repeaters going. My son, Seamus KE8GTT (age 12), and I are big fans of 443.550. We have used both the Echolink and Wires-X connections from our QTH near Westerville. One night Seamus had a great QSO with Vancouver Island and then followed it up with Nova Scotia. He was smiling from one end of the continent to the other. Keep up the good work, and let us know if we can ever be of any help. Troy, AC8XP
