While traveling in Idaho this weekend I made a side trip into Oregon to meet up with NK7U – Joe Rudi and visit his station. We have run into each other during some of the contests over the past few years and seemed like meeting up face to face would be a good thing to do. It was, Joe is one of the guys who I’m glad to have run into, thanks to ham radio. A very down to earth nice guy who was a real pleasure to get to meet. He also has the biggest station to date I have been able to visit or operate from.
