I made my first ham contact last night on the Ham Nation show. Man was I nervous. Fortunately I had three 25+ year to coach me. Matt KE6LPO of the Redwood Empire DXers was driving down the street outside (I think this might have been a set up!) and was the first to respond to my CQ. I understand there was quite a pile up a minute or two later as more than 25 hams tried to say hello! Thanks everyone. It's great to be a ham!
It's kind of cool to have video of my first ham contact!
