The end of day 6 and I have 23 confirmed countries and 45 contacts. The one thing I have learned is you can’t set in one spot and call CQ DX. America is not a hot QSL so no one will come back to you. What you have to do is go looking for people from other countries doing a CQ DX and call then back. Another thing is that roundtables are not a good place to go fishing for QSL cards. Also just because you send a QSL card doesn’t mean you will get one back. I would have 30 countries if every one I talk to, and sent a QSL card to, would have sent one back. They don’t have to send a QSL card but I think it is kind of rude. Oh well enough of that, This is Santa 2HS3408 QRT…
I am spending 10-12 hours a day, and some times more, on HamSphere and loving every minute. I get involved in 2 or3 roundtables a day and spend the rest of the time surfing the net I have made 33 confirmed contacts in 18 different countries. I don’t think that is to bad for this only being my 5th day. I still can’t get over how friendly everyone has been, They have also been very helpful as well. I have learned more in the last 5 days than I learned all of last year. the neat thing about that is I learn something from every contact.
Take my word for it if you haven’t signed up for HamSphere yer you should do so immediately…It can change your life.
I have developed a secondary QSL card to send to those who no-longer believe in me.
Joined a wonderful round table QSO last night with Mike 2HS567 in the chair. This round table meets every Thursday at 2200 hours EST on 50.190.00 all are welcome and they make you feel right at home. They are a very knowledgeable group of individuals and can explain all of the aspects of HamSphere. So, if you have questions or wish to enjoy the company of a good group of people join us next Thursday night
This is my 3rd day on HamSphere and I have meet so many wonderful people on the net. I can not believe how nice and kind they all are. So far this has been one of the best experiences of my life. I would highly recommend this program to anybody especially those like myself who are disabled. Hamsphere is a real good way to spend the many lonely hours and make many new friends.
Yes Boys and Girls there is a Santa, well at least that is what all my friends call me. I am a 64 year old retired disable vet. I live in Pawhusla, OK which is a small town about 60 miles north, northwest of Tulsa. I have been on HamSphere for 2 days and totally love it. I have already subscribed, and as you can see I started this blog.
