I woke up early in the morning when it got bright outside. It was starting another cold and quiet day here. Bringing toastes and coffee in ths shack, I started watching 15m. It was wide open to the US. There were a couple of pile ups going on. Apart from that mess, I started calling CQ.
A number of friends have given me calls in a row. A friend in New England told me what a blizzard they had had there and, despite of that snowy storm, he had walked 3km this morning, wearing a coat, a muffler and a hat. He was pleased to tell me his wife had called him crazy. Another guy reported about the latest result of his cancer check up. No signs of recurrence. He will finish his treatment protocol in 3 more courses. He and his family must have been relieved a lot. I felt thrilled when he started telling me about it like the result was and so forth. I wished him very good luck for the rest of the treatment. A guy would see our mutual friends for the very first time when he comes back to the west Coast from the mid US where he has been on duty for months. I have pictured of their eye ball over there.
And a few more interesting QSOs. What a wonderful hobby ham radio is! This slow and unexpected mode of communication would give us much pleasure when we could share our lives in the short communications. I felt thankful to all I met today. It is still worth spending some time and some energy to be on looking for those friends. May we be blessed having such QSOs throughout our lives. I am sure ham radio won't die if such communication would go on.
