David Winson (N1VEB)

June 26, 2014

Dave was my "elmer" having found me on the CB band being misled by many when I was the young age of 14 in 1995. Within two weeks, he had given me a copy of "Now You're Talking" a 5wpm code tape and I was off taking my exam. I passed and became a tech plus, N1WQP and within 9 months, I was an Extra. I was very active on HF (mainly CW) between 1996-1998 however have been off the air up until this now. I was excited to contact David to check in with him since I hadn't talked to him since I was last on the air. I was saddened to learn that I had just slightly missed being able to establish contact with him. I will always be grateful to David for introducing me to this great hobby.
