W4DOW W4V passed 20K Chase points today

Thanks to Karen W4KRN @ W4V/SH-009 today while she was running off black-Snakes She gave me the finial points to put me over 20,000 Chaser Points. Nice Lady and a Fine CW operator.
I been a Licensed Amateur now for 55 years and I got to say this has got to be on of the best and
most interesting things in the hobby I have ever got into. I been a Dx’er, Contest’er County Chaser, 1010’er and always been a Lover of CW. This program is like a ongoing 24/7 365 contest. And have meet a lot of Great fokes over the air in the SOTA program.
Thanks to all the Great Activators thru-out the World for taking the time and expense going out to the
summits and working us who are not able to get out there and do so. OH How I would Love to but getting old and in bad health now (LUNGS) I am happy setting here hooked to my o2 working everyone.
Thanks again all and ON-ward to 30K
W4DOW #1 SOTA Chaser W4V


We need lots of W4DOW in NA. Congrats sir.


Not bad either to be #16 out of almost a thousand chasers in North America!
Congratulations from NH.

Congrats DOW,
I’ll be activating EA1/CR-020 later today and I look forward to being chased by you among many others in NA and the rest of the world, despite the poor propagation conditions lately.
