Hi Bob,

  I actually know John as well.  When I lived in Mesa, I lived a couple hundred feet from John and Diane.  I've ate several meals at their winter QTH and have driven John to many summits to attempt satellite dx.  

  I also have coffee and pastry with John and Diane when I come through Cleveland.

  It was John that piqued my interest again into satellites.  My first contact on sats was with John while I stood outside in my yard.....a couple hundred feet away.

  His son Doug wrote a script that I use to glean the updated VUCC standings.  I then put "new" VUCC members into a spreadsheet and sort by "home" grid squares, states, and countries.

Jon, et al:

A big CONGRATS to all who have put the enjoyment and effort into
increasing their SAT Grid totals. FB!! I no longer have a home SAT
Station and do not really chase Grids any more. But, my joy is to roam
and give out Grids to those in the hunt.

As far as John K8YSE is concerned... We've been Friends/Co-Workers
for over 40 years and I guarantee that he will always be at least ONE
ahead of anyone that might come close - HIHI. Plus, he'll always help
anyone in need with his knowledge and experience.

TNX/73,   Bob  K8BL
