welcome to the ham world
or welcome again, because i was already introduced to the ham world when getting the radio operator licenses back in florida. the truth is that i never really used them and the operation of our single side band radio was limited to the weather reports and some emails.... until we decided to change e-mail providers and our radio was giving us some problmes. it was when we came to contadora looking for Gunther, a ham aficionado and a great person that for three or four days spent hours with us in his house teaching us about the radio we have and how to actually use it. now we can get news on board, talk to other hams all over the world and still get our weather reports as we sail. thank you gunther and suzanne for the wonderful days in your house and the wealth of information you gave us. we will be contacting you from remote areas for sure!!!!
