I was able to meet up with Col. Wheelock as well - that was so cool!  We 
stood in a 20 MINUTE - not hour - line, and I was able to get his signature 
on the boom of my Arrow antenna - the same antenna I worked him on last 
July.  I have a few pics of it on my blog:  http://kd8ksn.blogspot.com/  I 
am contemplating what I want to do with the boom right now.  I certainly 
don't want that to fade!

     I took my  wife's and my QSL card from November QSO's, and the
Colonel signed those. When I told him I was "Tom from Grand Rapids..:,
he interrupted me and said, "You were the one that brought up Roger
Chaffee. Thank you for that". Whew. He remembers a lot of stuff. BTW, my
buddies watched and video taped me with the Colonel. Said I was like a 8
year kid. I was...
     Fun time...
