Yep, scanned over it and so many other after the TDW.  You've certainly been around a bit.   

WAs licensed in 1977 as a Novice and made the progression up to Advanced in 1979, but only became an Extra in 2000 on a lark.  No was was more surprised than me.  

Spent 16 years with ARRL incoming Bureau and a few years as an OO. It was fun, but had too many irons in fire with doing local clubs newsletter every month for 10+ years and running my own alarm business .  The business eventually stressed  me out so much that I had a stroke in 2019.  Now I just hobble around, hi, hi !

Spent a bunch of years with 10-10 as a Director and later Secretary. As the paperchasing end wound down, so, did I.  Far too many 10-10ers passed away (there were a lot of YLs back then !)  One of my favorites was Gini, N7HDB in NV.  

Anyhow, welcome to PODXS !

I was one of those that gave out #0000. I ended up with 175 contact/numbers. So i applied for membership and now I am #2844. Already add it to my Profile in PSKExpress. After I uploaded my ADIF file, it showed that I already had four Awards pending and on my way to a bunch more. I then signed up for this email list and the Contest List. It has been great seeing PSK31 Contest show up.
