Frank Nemchak (N8GRQ)

June 18,1999

My grandfather N8GRQ. Miss you Grandpa. Wish I would have paid attention to your Ham Radio Hobby more, you tried to get me to pay attention to it in 1995 but I had just graduated college and got married. I get it now, I wish you could have seen my enthusiasm now. I am sure you would have preferred I had your full Kenwood TS440 setup now and kept it going. Instead it went in an estate sale for pennies I am sure. Anyhow. I finally got it about Ham Radio about 2 months ago. I studied hard and got my Technician AND General in the same day. I also applied for a Vanity call and I now have your Callsign. I will be keeping it until I get my Extra. 73 Grandpa and thanks for being my first elmer.
