Many have been working NJ7H/VE8 and /VE7 as
he travels through rare grids in the Northwest
Territories and other Provinces. Unfortunately
he started having problems with his antenna cables
and that caused him to start using his whip on the
car for transmit and limiting operations to FO-29
Today the problems were fixed, if only temporarily,
all due to the help of a Canadian Ham who is not a
satellite operator. Tim Repas, VE7XIX, who lives
in Taylor BC, near Fort St. John met up with Gabe
earlier today and helped him get his cables working
again. This is yet another story of hams helping
other hams they have never met before. And the story
probably won't find its way into QST magazine either.
So I would encourage all of us who have been working
Gabe and those who just might be readers on the board,
to send an email of appreciation to Tim at his QRZ
address. It just might make his day; he certainly
helped make ours!
