Best said in Garry’s own words: I received my first certificate in April 2017. Certificate #5. My first contact was with K5NQ on April 1, 2017. I check in with the “Rare Ones” as often as I can. There are only four of the original nine left. Thanks Big John, Frank, Louis and Capt. Scott for keeping the “Rare Ones” on the air. Thanks for my new certificate.
