Author Topic: Is WN7SYN still around?  (Read 839 times)

Forty-five or so years ago, in 1973 or 1975, I knew a James Hickenbotham (though I may have spelled the last name wrong), whose novice call was WN7SYN.  We lived in College Place, Washington at the time (just outside Walla Walla).  I was thirteen, high school freshman; he was (as I recall) a senior, so likely born around 1954-1956 time frame.

If he's still around and still active, I just wanted to let him know that, even though it took most of a half century (and deletion of the Morse requirement), I finally got my ham license.

Thanks.  Still forty-plus years ago, and QRZ, at least, doesn't list him either by WB7BMD or by name.  I'll try digging further in the archives you linked and the FCC, now that I have the spelling right on his name.
