Rich, N4EX, reaches 75,000 chaser points


Rich reached 75,000 chaser points today. He is the first North American to cross that threshold. This is a truly a fantastic accomplishment. Congratulations, Rich!


My congratulations also Rich… You are such a dedicated chaser as well as gentleman in the Sota pile ups. Looking forward to working you on your next activation too. Spring is almost here! 73 de Scotty KG3W


Congrats! Often the first chaser when activating and most often just in front of me on the chase.

Congrats Rich! That’s a lot of chasing. We have QSO’ed 205 times from summits, and I will never forget when I worked you from the top of Mauna Kea in Hawaii…and I thought I wouldn’t find anyone to work in the USA!! Hi Hi

thanks Rich




75K wow

Well done :smile:


Well done Rich. I might have given you a dozen of those along the way. It is always a pleasure to get a call from you when I am on a summit. :slight_smile:

Bravo Rich,

We made 92 contacts from NC to F/AM-xxx, all CW on 10, 12, 15, 17, and 20M.
(by the way you uploaded only 83 qso on Sotabase).

73 and hope to cu agn soon.


Nice Rich, Always enjoy hearing from you when I activate… you’re normally #1 in the log.

Well done,



Amazing! This is such a big achievement…a tremendous commitment of time! Congrats Rich!


Hello Rich.
Congratulations to this achievement.
I am honored to have your QSL Card in my shack (13.11.2011)!

Well done Rich! After looking over your QRZ page I’ve found the secret to your success! It’s that very scientifically tuned TA-33Jr which you blame on the wind! But we know better don’t we! :wink:
Again, Well Done,
Walt NE4TN


Congratulations Rich, it is always great to hear your call on a summit and I appreciate every QSO!
