WØMNA-Gary Auchard was named Leavenworth County Ham of the year. Gary has recently served several terms as Pilot Knob President.

KØEMP-Tim gave a presentation on resonance and antennas at  Emporia Amateur Radio Society. 

Santa Fe Trail will conduct its annual technician license education course beginning middle of January and running 8 weeks.

Johnson County held their annual auction at the Marshall Ensor Museum and Park the weekend before Halloween. The weekend kicked off with a campfire Friday nite. The auction Saturday morning was an occasion for Heathkit lovers. I think there were 5 tables of Heathkit alone, in excellent condition. I’ve never seen that much Heathkit  gear in one place before. Obviously from a collector. Several tables of Hallicrafters, Hammarlund and Yaesu were there as well. Some amplifiers rounded out the rare boat anchors.  With attendance around 80 you could have comfortably taken home as much as you could get in your car. Breakfast and lunch were catered and very good. Wonderful weather and great friends made it a fantastic weekend at the Ensor.

The guys at Smith County put KØH on the air for the rededication of the Home On The Range cabin. Built in 1872 it is where a poem by Dr. Brewster Higley was written and the song Home On the Range derived from, later becoming our state song. The cabin has been completely restored. Our Lieutenant Governor and  Attorney  General were in attendance and  made contacts with Oregon. The group made 200 contacts covering all 50 states and 9 countries. Mac-WAØRKQ coordinated the event and built the Off Center Fed dipole used for the station, Larry-N0LL provided technical support and Mike-KBØQGT handled the very nice QSL cards.

The Western Kansas 160 Net never really went away but now the noise is low enough that we can hear each other better.
1960KHz at 8PM Mountain time, NCS KDØEZS is at Tribune.
