First Contact certificate

Kermit Lehman


A month or so ago there was a discussion of various existing and proposed awards.  Someone mentioned a First Contact Award available from the ARRL.  I decided my wife would like to get me one and it came in the mail yesterday.  She was more surprised than I was.  Nice gift.

I was a very shaky novice Novice back then.  I could barely send CW with my J-38 key because my hand trembled so much.
