I told a well known ham and business person in the ham radio community as I was making a demonstration for his company, that my first vision of a pioneer is the American settler with his face down in the dust of the Great Plains with a few arrows in his back. Its hard to be first and you hope that the arrows are not deep enough to hurt.
When I need a ham radio logo or QSL Card, my first choice is always Jeff Murray, K1NSS. Jeff was kind enough to do a spectacular job on the "Expo" logo with our name inside of a magnetic loop antenna. Its a beautiful representation (above) of what I wanted to express and besides it will look good on coffee cups and hats.
I had a great conversation with Tim Carter, W3ATB, who is my guest this week. Tim is a relatively new ham, but an old hand in being a media personality. Tim was the first full time remodeling guy with a radio talk show, years ago. Since then he has created a great media business around his building interests. When he became a ham, his first act was to find a mentor to get him to success fast. That is why I called this message from Zero to 60 in four seconds. Tim says in the show that a ham radio mentor is the fastest way to success and enjoyment of the hobby. I can't agree more.
Thanks for listening. Stay safe and be careful out there.
