Mark's original callsign and QSL card


"This is a picture of me operating Field Day in 1996 when I was 15. Andy, W9FXT (then N9FXT), and his wife Pat, N9FXT (then N9OID) setup a pop up camper in their backyard for a youth field day with two other teenage hams (Chris, KB9JKS and Bryan, KB9MCI), besides myself. We had a blast!"


"Friend of mine, SK 2003, anyone that was active on two meters in the mid to late 90's probably talked to Dave. Used to hang out on 146.91 in Gary, 147.000 in Merrillville, 146.775 Valpo, and 147.285 Plymouth. He also had his own repeater on 147.075 in Rensselaer."
