I had a great time, in general. Ivan, a 13-year old fellow ham, and I went
around the Miami-Dade Emergency Operations Center wreaking random havoc, and
I met some really cute girls from a scout group who are interested in
becoming fellow looneys^H^H^Hhams. Cool, huh? *evil laugh* ...
Also present was Bryce, a 7-year old boy wonder who was studying for the Technician class exam. I wish him the best of luck...
I played with the HF radios a while after 4 AM when all the *normal* operators had gone off to find various areas in which to sleep... Tuning around at complete random in the 40 meter band, I found lots of CW (Morse Code) activity. I mean, MASSIVE amounts. And sadly, all I could understand was an occasional "CQ"... I really, really want to learn Morse Code. I'm missing so much complete and total niftiness, I just know it.
