Hello Steve, W3HF:
On behalf of TARA I thank you for your kind words! I can tell you this, TARA has been proud to sponsor the PSK Rumbles as well as the RTTY Sprints. Plus, I think we've been extremely lucky to have the cooperation and support we've received from the many digital users World Wide! The participation in these events have far exceeded our goals and we're hoping to experience the continued growth that we've seen over the years.
I'm tickled to read the acknowledgments that the PSK Rumble Team (Ernie, WM2U; Joe, N2NOU & Karen, KB2UUC) are receiving on the 070 & TARA News Groups, and deservedly so! However, there is one notation I'd like to make here. As far as the PSK Rumbles go, Ernie Mills has been the "Main Man" in charge all along. It was Ernie's foresight in what PSK was going to become that brought the rumbles into existence. My role in the PSK Rumbles has really been negligible, so much so that I really do not deserve to be credited in any way with its success. Yes, it's nice to read the remarks of Steve, W3HF, when he writes, "As President of the sponsoring organization, Mr Bill is the "big kahuna of the contest." But please remember what Steve also said about the efforts of Ernie, WM2U, "the contest is what it is because of his efforts" I couldn't agree more! So, if anyone deserves the title of "Big Kahuna" it's Ernie, I hope you think so too!
