Recently, George Carr, II – ka5khb sent the “Rare Ones” of New Orleans a piece of Amateur Radio History. The WA “25” award was issued to an operator who contacted 25 other amateur radio stations in the Greater New Orleans Area. George believes this may have been a prelude to the “Rare Ones” of New Orleans!
One interesting note is both George Carr, II – ka5khb, the holder of the Award and John Uhl, w5ze (wa5cst), the past President of the Greater New Orleans Amateur Radio Club are currently two Association Members of the “Rare Ones” of New Orleans. The Award was dated August 1, 1965.
John Uhl, an Associate Member of the Rare Ones’ of New Orleans, recently sent in a picture of his certificate proudly displayed in his shack. John is an avid DX’er and proud to be a part of the Rare Ones’ of New Orleans.
Congratulations once again on behalf of the “Rare Ones”,
