|W6SL, Big Kahuna receives Best QSL award from Santa Barbara ARC|
|Dick Norton, N6AA briefing Newington News|
|Beach Boy, DR.R with Carrie, W6TAI and Wayne, N6NB both are South Cook Island, Echo 51 DXpedition veterans|
TK and Big Kahuna hospitality is well known across two counties as Carrie, W6TAI and Wayne, N6NB stopped in during their travels.
Carrie, W6TAI operated as E51TAI in addition Wayne, N6NB as E51YNB during the 2012 IARU HF World Championship including the earlier ARRL International DX event. They collectively made over 2,800 Qs in the IARU Championship and, more than likely, counted as a Q+ multiplier, a double benefit for the RadioSport log.
Wayne, N6NB is an accomplished Amateur Radio operator with his own web page titled The N6NB Page. I recommend reading through NB's pages for additional insight into location and facing down the challenges of building a competitive station on a mountain top.
Our afternoon under the California Central Coast sun was lots of ham radio fun having met Carrie, W6TAI, Wayne, N6NB, and Dick, N6AA who briefed Newington news. The day was transfused with Aloha spirit and Mahalo goes out to TK and Big Kahuna for their hard work.
