Hook Joan (KA1WCT)
June 14th 2012
Joan was my mom. She received her novice
license a long time ago, but only made one
contact and she loved it because the ham was
flirting with her. She had passed the novice test to
please my Dad(WA1PFS). Unfortunately she
didnt have any interest in pursuing the hobby any
further, but she always encouraged Dad and I to
stay involved which we did untill his untimely
death in 2004. I guess this is just a way to say to
all those ham wives , moms, daughters, hubbys,
brothers etc to keep encouraging your hams to
get involved in the ham community. Its a fun and
diverse hobby for all to enjoy.
