I had my first CW QSO (morst code contact) in 25 years. That 599 perfect signal report felt like the best news all day, despite the short distance. Today Arch Street, tomorrow the world!

I look forward to my first since getting back into after 25 years. I will operate 1D from my QTH, an apartment in Philadelphia running QRP into a magnetic loop sitting by my bedroom window.

I have enjoyed participating in the creation of the IFTF Testing Project Report. Those interested in interactive fiction (text adventure games) should check it out.
