Sorry OM for over a year later
Is there a way for me to get in touch with Tom (NL7RR). I seen his picture while looking through Wake Island stuff and he looks identical to me a few years ago. My wife, daughters and friends all thought it was me. If he could email me I’ll send him a picture 84 years old now and lack the heavier sideburns and beard but facial the same. Thanks
Did Tom make it to KH9? de ZL1BBW
