This afternoon I heard KO4FFG calling on 2-meter repeater W4WVP/R, and I answered. He said he's a new ham, name Eliu, and ours was his second contact. He took the Technician exam in Annapolis. He was operating from home in Springfield, Virginia, using an IC-2300 and a Comet GP-3. He also has a Yaesu HT. He had a good signal through the repeater.
I welcomed him to ham radio and invited him to listen to Newsline and check in tomorrow, if he can. I also invited him to read about the Arlington Amateur Radio Club at w4wvp.org .
If you hear KO4FFG on 145.47, please welcome him.
