Hams helping Hams

Greetings Fellow Amateur Operators… May I take this opportunity to give a big ‘THANK-YOU” to our fellow member Ahmet – VA3TUR for helping me install a vehicle radio on Saturday December 5. There were several complications with this install with both the radio and the antenna due to vehicle construction. Ahmet’s patience and experience however won the day and this operator is the better for it.     Thanks again Ahmet I learned a lot! Mark…VA3FLC
