First time in my amateur radio career (38 years) I am going after an award. Repeat offender award for activating my home park NC K-3854. This is awarded when you activate a park 20 times. I am at activation 16. I am starting to recognize familiar call signs. Yesterday a visitor stopped by and asked me what I was doing. I explained to him about amateur radio. After further conversation he said he was a medical student studying to be a doctor. I suggested that he get his amateur radio license and gave him my card. A couple of engineer amateur radio friends keep on reminding me about using a counterpoise. Apparently it is a part of your antenna. I used two of them for this activation.
