I try to get on every New Year's Eve in memory of good friend Bob VE6YR (sk) who originally got me started in this contest -- and with whom I shared a warm tradition of SARTG NY greetings in the first wee hours of Day One for years prior to his passing in December 2009. Here's a little note about Bob from my website in 2009: I didn't think I'd work anyone this year, but there were a few on 40M. Notably a trio of most welcome JAs and Frank ZM2B were workable, helping propel my score to a lofty 32 points. Also was great to see Lorne VE7RK on in the firt hours of 2018. It's so cold out that the tower wouldn't rotate all the way around -- had to work Frank in New Zealand off a side of the rotary dipole, which meant he as doing most of the work. I suspect I'll find ice jamming the retention jaws when I investigate tomorrow. Happy new year to everyone. Let's make 2018 a great year radio-wise and otherwise-wise. 73 and all the very best from the deep snow and deeper cold of British Columbia. See you in RTTY Roundup! -- Bud VA7ST
