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.
