Not the "skinniest" on the block, but I doubt either will be contesting using CW in the near future.

Congrats fellas. Welcome to the club.
I'm pretty sure I still win the "fat guy" award. 88 baby!

I assumed that was intentional. I was listening to an IRLP QSO this morning between N0PQV (big time IRLP Elmer local here in Denver, Terry) and a fella in Nevada on the Western Reflector. His call was K0KOA, which when I heard it I thought of you and your K0BCO.

Sounds good.

Congrats, Tom and Perry!

It was an intentional vanity call, but I was not aware of KBCO when I requested it. I had just moved here and wanted to ditch my 6 call and identify with my new home. I could not figure out why so many people asked me about my license plate until one day I was riding with my GF and she had the station on. Doh! I'm a Sirius subscriber. So I listened for a few days. It's a ClearChannel station and they completely ripped off KFOG in S.F. for slogans and programming. And they play John Mayer. I hate KBCO. One of these days I'm gonna pop for a new call sign. Maybe n0bco. Bummer, it's taken. I'd love the Alex Chilton tribute call: n0sex but again, taken...

Tried you several times this afternoon from about 1700HNR to 1800HNR on 146.460 simplex with 50 watts. I believe I heard you through the scratchiness but I'm guessing you could not make me out. What are you running power wise and antenna wise? I was hitting the repeaters up on Mt Thorodin alright with low power and so I'm pretty sure my end was working.

I had a good QSO with Perry around 17:00, I think we were both headed towards Boulder. Dave I heard you around 5:30 calling.. I tried to call you back after my errand was complete but you must have been back in the house. I also heard Tom trying to call Perry a couple of times but I was too tied up to jump in.. plus I was up in Boulder and it was pretty scratchy. nice to hear you guys out there though, in any case.
