First successful ham contact tonight! Nice to know my equipment is working, even it here in the sticks!

@category Congrats! Big step, moving from just listening to keying up! 😃

@MindOfJoe it definitely was! Had to listen for a while, need a feel for the local etiquette! I am quite remote, so it's taken some time to get a contact, and was quite nerve racking when someone actually replied!

Was a good chat though, the old boy on the other end seemed very happy that new people are still coming into the hobby!

@category Well, if you're under 70 or so, you're new blood Aside from that, hams are almost universally friendly and happy to help. Just ignore the pedantic curmudgeons and you'll be fine 🙂

Welcome aboard & 73!
