The most famous person I ever worked was Bill Welsh, W6DDB.
Have his QSL card to prove it. It has a cool photo of a Lockheed P-3 Orion on it.

If I remember right, he used to write for CQ magazine years ago.

As this is a QRP forum, my famous person would be Doug DeMaw, W1FB. Both of us operating QRP. His QRP CQ magazine column was the only reason I subscribed.

I remember talking to Martii Laine on the air one afternoon about 15 years ago, so that was kinda cool.  My mom got to meet Priscilla Presley at a women's conference about 20 years ago.  My mom told her that I was a ham radio operator and that I wanted my mom to ask her if she was still into the hobby.  She told my mom that she let her license expire, but that she enjoyed the hobby while she was involved in it.  She signed an autograph for my mother to give to me, and also signed my mom's book about Elvis that she had written.
