KB1RJC & KB1RJD NA's newest MG's

Herm(RJC) & Merle(RJD) both just achieved Mountain Goat while completing their fourth QSO’s with Doug W1DMH. I had the pleasure of meeting them a few years back and can say that they are just as wonderful a couple in person as they appear to be via radio waves. Congratulations to both of you.

Congrats to both Herm & Merle. East Coast always needs more goats. And I’m a secret fan girl of Merle.

Awesome, congrats to you both…Baa…Mike AD5A

Nice. Our longest lasting climber-couple… nearly six years. Smart, too, as they mostly avoided winter. Doesn’t hurt that Merle is queen of the Summit Sisters… Congrats to both.

Ellliott, K6EL


Always a pleasure to work you.

It was a very plesant surprise to have my first eyeball QSO with both Merle and Herm on Mount Greylock W1/MB-001, followed a few days later by on-air QSO’s with them from their Goat summit on Mountain Goat day.
Congratulations to both Merle and Herm on a terrific achievement !

Well Done! Have enjoyed our QSOs and face-to-face linkups and hope for many more.
Warm regards and 73!

BRAVO, Merle & Herm! Excellent work!

Thank you for all the chases when propagation permitted!

73, Steve/wGOAT

Congratulations Merle and Herm,

I’ve enjoyed chasing you both on 40 meters through the years and it was a special treat to be in your logbook when you became Goats.

Welcome to the herd.


Congratulations! Very well deserved. They have been both working together towards MG since 2011 activating over 200 summits with over 150 of them uniques. Average points/activation ~ 5. You have to work real hard and persevere to have those kinds of numbers and they did it as a team. Bravo!
