John - I'm an assistant advisor in the CW Academy. Last night, our homework included a QSO where
we heard you talk about your QRP rig and antenna in attic. What a hoot! You're real!! FB, John.

"I am surprised I haven't run across you before. Heck I have been at this over 50 years.
I have done some amazing things with simple antennas and really low power. It is great.
BTW- I have done it with SSB and CW. Talked all over the country during the last sunspot
minimum..... Carry all your stuff in a small knapsack and go to the woods. Its fun...... Rich, K4CPM"

"Just saw the writeup that Marty sent out on the Skyview groups.io thread. Many kudos to you!
I appreciate the writeup. I worked CW exclusively from my novice days in the mid-50s until I
built one of the early Heathkit SSB single banders. In the late 60s, I commuted to work with
a small CW homebrew rig, a whip antenna, and a leg key. Kind of dangerous in city traffic,
since the car was a stick shift. But with CW, people will be patient. Many thanks and 73 John W4KV"
"Hi John; Congrats on your amazing CW QRP activity and records!!!! I see you are in my K4EU
log 16 times 160-10 meters.... I know you are in my logs when I was on the DX side of the pile-up,
but those logs are not electronic/searchable..... 73 and see you on the CW bands.... Steve/K4EU"

"John, I just wanted to check in and say that after many years and a few moves I am still reading
your diary and enjoying reading about your amateur radio and personal life. I have a lot of ham
radio links on my browser nut yours is the one I go to almost every day. A nice aspect of your
diary is that your readers can enjoy your annual rituals around the Christmas holiday and look
forward to seeing your decorations and the final scene of the nativity for the year. It's great
fun to read about what you and Mike are up to and to enjoy Mike's words of wit when he does the
writing. You guys seem to be really good friends based upon your activities in amateur radio,
trains, movies, food, computer games, and life in general. The work you have compiled over the
decades concerning the weather is very interesting and it would be fun to see that data for some
plugging and chugging. You have so much of it I am sure there is a bigger use for that beyond
curiosity especially nowadays during our climate awareness showdown. I love doing things with
numbers to see trends and to mine out things that may not be obvious otherwise by casual glance.
Please take care and thank you for all the great memories you are creating in your blog as it is
a part of my life and many other hams out there. mark W4MMR"
