I talked to Harry today on 20 meters on 14192. He is a old friend from Long Island. We had a nice chat and he is doing well.

I am delighted to hear the good news for Harry and all his friends. I go back a number of years with Harry and his Sperry net; his dad and my father in law (the original W2AS) go back to the inception of QCWA--both being Charter members and I last visited him and Kay during the Virginia Beach Convention in 2008. I have been delinquent in getting on the radio but will try to congratulate him on the air next week. 73, AL, W2AS

Greetings! Just received my membership package in the mail today; very impressive. Also see on your home page that Harry W2HD is the new President Emeritus. I had the pleasure of meeting Harry at Rochester hamfest some 20 years ago when Stan K2SJO (former Hudson Division director) and I attended; a true gentleman and a very nice guy. It was great to see his call on your homepage the first time I visited as a new QCWA member.
