2614RE: [wsjtgroup] Scatter in the 60's
- Nov 4, 2005
Good to see that picture. My elmer K4ZJ (now a sk, someone in GA has his call) took me by to see that dish when I was maybe 18 or 19 (late 70’s). We were in Memphis for another reason which I forget. But unfortunately Paul was not home at the time and I did not get to see the goodies inside. HHK’s station is/was about 60 miles from here.

If so, he was one of the very early pioneers of meteor scatter communications and having worked with him is really great. I wish I had known him. I only ever worked him once, on 13 CM EME, from K2UYH. Here is a picture of him and his dish from the front cover of QST, March 1968. Maybe it won't come through on the list, so I will send this message to you directly as well.
