Thank you

I hope this works, this is my first attempt to post. I received my bitx v3 yesterday and took a long time before connecting it to power because I didn’t want to smoke anything. With help from the original Elmer whom can be identified if they wish, and another ham cheering me on I had the guts to power on my first uBITx v3. I have tuned to wwv and with my dipole a mess across the floor I can clearly hear it at 10.000 with a half wave 20 meter dipole.

I am over the moon, the case is even the color of the tempo one my dad purchased for my twin and I as kids. I want to thank the community at large and the ham that sent me a rig. I have to find out how to pay it back now.

Hams are the best.

To pay it back, study, learn all you can, rub shoulders with other Elmers, and don’t be afraid to tell about your mistakes.  Then when you find other like minded new hams introduce yourself and make yourself available.  A lot of the hams I have met were shy and not outgoing, but once someone showed them a little attention they blossomed, and some of them passed me in knowledge and learning and went on to Elmer others.

Isn’t this fun?
